MANNFORD, Okla. – Oklahomans who suffered losses in the recent wildfire outbreak will have more places to go for answers to insurance questions.
Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak has directed new Consumer Assistance field locations be opened in Drumright and Noble/Slaughterville area. The location at the Drumright Fire Department, 124 W. Broadway, opened today. Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) staff will be partnering with the Red Cross at Twelve Corners Baptist Church, 15601 E. Etowah Rd. in Noble, starting tomorrow. OID Consumer Assistance will continue to be available in Mannford at Hwy 51 and Hwy 48, and in Sand Springs at the United Methodist Family Life Center – 101 W. 38th Street.
“Over the last three days, I’ve spoken with dozens of people who have lost everything they own in the fires,” Doak said. “Some don’t have insurance on their homes, but many do. When I or my staff get involved in an insurance problem, we often get faster results than homeowners can get themselves.”
Oklahomans can reach the OID Consumer Assistance team toll-free at (800) 522-0071 or online at oid.ok.gov.
Commissioner Doak will also be leading a news conference tomorrow afternoon in Mannford. The briefing will include local leaders and insurance industry representatives, delivering updates on wildfire recovery efforts. Interested media members should come to the LakeChurch parking lot at the junction of Highways 51 and 48 in Mannford at 2:30 p.m.
