Emergency Operations Hotline
Following the implementation of County Judge Richard F. Cortez’s directive that prohibits mass gatherings of 50 people or more, the Hidalgo County Emergency Operations Center established a hotline.
That number, which all county employees are encouraged to share with the public is: 956-292-7765
The public can call this number and they will be asked if it is a health question or a question regarding the mass gathering prohibition and the caller will be transferred accordingly.
Hidalgo County’s E-DALGO alert system was activated for public use for the first time following the disaster declaration. There were 53,308 phone calls made with alerts to landlines. An additional 11,080 text alerts were sent out.
