Affiliated Agency:  Office of Emergency Management


Emergency Management involves preparing for disaster before it happens, responding to disaster, recovering once disaster has occurred and looking for ways to make disasters less devastating in the future.  It is the continuous process that involves planning, training and education.  It also the process of identifying exactly what risks are faced by the community.  Among the risks for Ponca City are severe weather and hazardous chemical releases.


One of the most important aspects of this department is ensuring that the public is educated about the potential risks and what steps should be taken to increase personal safety.  Warning the public is an equally important department responsibility.  When your community is prepared for the effects of these events and notified promptly loss of life and property is greatly reduced.
