Announcing the Emergency Response Program
The Oklahoma Municipal League is excited to announce the newest service available for members, the Emergency Response Program. The program is a comprehensive emergency preparation program designed through strategic partnerships to help prepare municipalities for emergencies that come their way.
Members that participate in the program and complete yearly Oklahoma Emergency Management (OEM) Training will have access to the League’s Emergency Response Team should emergencies arise in their communities. Services from the League are focused on three areas:
Governmental Coordination – League staff will assist your municipality in coordinating with governmental entities to ensure the proper assistance can be directed to your area. This may include assisting with regulatory compliance, proper documentation, and communication with key agency personnel.
Public Relations – In the face of an emergency, local leaders often simply do not have the time or resources to deal with media communications. The Emergency Response Team will assist your municipality in this area, including speaking with the media as well as preparing and disseminating press releases.
Community Response – While your municipal leaders are busy addressing local issues, the Emergency Response Team will assist your municipality with coordinating services and resources for those impacted by the emergency.
Through the League’s partnership with OEM, municipal leaders will have the opportunity to participate in training programs presented by some of the state’s leading experts in emergency management. Topics will vary from session to session, and are designed for elected officials, municipal staff, and first responders to attend together. The first training event is entitled “What is Emergency Management, Whole Community & Planning”, and will be held at Rose State College Professional Development Center in Midwest City on February 23rd, 2018 beginning at 9:00 a.m.
If you are interested in participating in the program, please contact me and we can set up a time to discuss your municipality’s involvement.
