Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) provide support and guidance to the management, staff, and members of TX-TF1. They define what is expected and required of personnel during both emergency response and non-emergency activities. In addition, SOGs provide a mechanism to communicate legal and administrative requirements, organizational policies, and strategic plans to all staff and members.
The Task Force reserves the right to change or suspend any or all parts of these procedures.
