Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tulsa, OK is the fourth community to join our Community Pilot Program. We had a successful kick-off meeting with a variety of stakeholders in July 2016, and will be collaborating with our Tulsa partners in the months ahead. Two key areas we expect to focus on are economic supply chains and building capacity in disaster preparedness in diverse community organizations.

The range of hazards faced in Tulsa include:

  • Dam and levee failures
  • Drought
  • Earthquakes
  • Expansive soils
  • Extreme heat
  • Flood
  • Hailstorms
  • High winds
  • Lightning
  • Severe winter storms
  • Tornadoes
  • Wildfires
