In Oklahoma, it is not uncommon for extreme weather to occur. Whether it’s severe or tornadic thunderstorms or snow or ice storms in the winter, things can change at a moment’s notice. Frequently, we enter into drought conditions or extremely dry weather patterns that put areas at risk for wildfires and often, burn bans can be put into place. Finally, there are always the unforeseen emergencies that could possibly happen. After all, it’s not always weather that could cripple a town or area. So, what do we do in all of these situations? We prepare ourselves. How do we do that? By staying informed. This page is set-up to help you find that information.
