Welcome to the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security's (OKOHS) Website.
Oklahoma’s history is rich with examples of overcoming adversity. From the Dust Bowl to the 2007 ice storm, from the worst domestic terrorist attack on American soil to the emergencies we face day in and day out––Oklahomans are well-versed in disaster response and resiliency. We continually face new and different challenges when it comes to maintaining our way of life. In our state, planning for disaster is more than just a good idea; it is imperative. Oklahomans know all too well that it’s not if but when a disaster will affect them or their community. Because of this mind set, a standard has been set for the way Oklahomans handle adversity. This “Oklahoma Standard” has become somewhat of a mantra for those charged with public safety in the state and it is the underlying force behind all we do to protect the lives and well-being of Oklahomans.
It is the mission of the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security (OKOHS) to exhaust every effort in order to make our state a safe place to live. Thank you for visiting our Web site. Here you'll find detailed information on what we do. OKOHS has administered well over $100 million in federal Department of Homeland Security grant funding to prevent terrorism, protect our citizens and respond to and recover from disasters. We encourage you to visit our site often to stay informed about our various projects and the ways we are supporting our Homeland Security partners both at the state and local levels.
