Information & Resources

Homeland Defense Journal

Homeland Defense Journal and its associated web site, e-newsletter, training courses and conferences, market research and focused special reports together seek to facilitate communication among all levels of government concerned with homeland security, covering the issues and the technology, solutions, policies, people, case studies and events affecting that community.

 

Homeland Security Monitor

Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism (MIPT)

The National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism located in Oklahoma City is dedicated to expanding and sharing knowledge to help prevent terrorism and mitigate its effects.

Originally incorporated, on September 23, 1999, as a non-profit corporation in Oklahoma and recognized as such by the Internal Revenue Service, MIPT grew out of the desire of the survivors and families of the Murrah Federal Building bombing of April 19, 1995 to have a living memorial. We intend to honor that desire by doing what we can to try to prevent other cities from living through what Oklahoma City had to live through.

 

Oklahoma 2-1-1

2-1-1 (Nationwide)

2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number that, where available, connects people with important community services and volunteer opportunities. The implementation of 2-1-1 is being spearheaded by United Ways and comprehensive and specialized information and referral agencies in states and local communities. United Way of America (UWA) and the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) strongly support federal funding so that every American has access to this essential service.
