TFDA Disaster Team

The Texas Funeral Directors Association has long been called upon by local, state and federal government agencies as well as other funeral directors to provide rapid, professional and ethical response when a disaster or mass fatality event has taken place within our borders.  The Association recognizes its responsibility and the need for a well-organized plan of activation when assistance is requested.

If assistance with a disaster or mass fatality event is needed, call the TFDA office at (800) 460-8332 during business hours.  If an event happens outside of business hours, then call one of the following:

Terry Edwards, Weatherford, (817) 594-7753

Heather Edwards Hauboldt, Victoria, (325) 370-3645

David Patterson, Mesquite, (877) 216-2708 office or (214) 597-3207 cell
