APPOINTMENT TO FILL POSITION FOR THE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR BREWSTER COUNTY
Matt Van Ostrand has been selected by Judge Eleazar Cano to fill the Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) position for Brewster County. Mr. Van Ostrand has a bachelor’s degree in Emergency and Disaster Management, three years of service in law enforcement communications, over 12 years of experience in fire service operations, and recent experience in emergency management administration.
Mr. Van Ostrand was born in Oklahoma. His family moved to the Texas Hill County in 1983 and has resided in Wimberley since 1990. In 2000 Mr. Van Ostrand started his career in public service, joining the local volunteer fire department. Experiencing the effects of Hurricane Katrina in September 2001 and assisting the Hays County Response with the unloading and care of evacuees from New Orleans, he felt he could better serve more people in emergency management. Mr. Van Ostrand obtained his degree while working as a full-time professional firefighter for the Wimberley Volunteer Fire Department. He most recently served as a Lieutenant coordinating administration for the fire department, while also providing first responder leadership.
“In the fifteen years that I have been in public service I have seen how our world has changed and moved forward. I have seen firsthand how important it is for the emergency services, city, county officials and the public to know each other and regularly talk to each other about what has happened in the past, as well as what can happen in the future.”
Judge Cano added, “We feel fortunate to have a professional with Matt’s credentials in training, education, and real world operations. He met and exceeded all required and preferred qualifications for the Brewster EMC position.
Mr. Van Ostrand will report for duty of May 26 and will quickly be making the rounds to get to know Brewster County. He will be meeting with all organizations responsible for or supporting first response in the area, as well as public service organizations.
