FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management Joins Partners to Increase Disaster   [open pdf - 39KB]

Alternate Title: OEM Joins Partners to Increase Disaster Readiness

"The FEMA Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "In Spring, travelers throughout Oklahoma learn ways to decrease their risks for damage when severe weather comes to their neighborhoods. Each April, the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management (OEM) partners with private and public entities to spearhead a month-long, public education campaign. During the campaign, people learn readiness tips for weather events like tornadoes, floods, ice storms, and hail." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
