Homeland security is a concerted national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States,
reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism, and minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur.
The strategic objectives of Oklahoma County Homeland Security in order of priority are to:
Oklahoma County must prepare to minimize the damage and recover from any future terrorist attacks
that may occur despite our best efforts at prevention. An effective response to a major terrorist
incident—as well as a natural disaster—depends on being prepared.
- Prevent terrorist attacks within Oklahoma County.
- Reduce Oklahoma County’s vulnerability to terrorism.
- Minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur.
Therefore, the Oklahoma County Homeland Security office works towards assisting the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
with creating a comprehensive national system to bring together and coordinate all necessary response assets quickly and effectively.
We must plan, equip, train, and exercise many different response units to mobilize without warning for any emergency.
