OHS Launches New Web site

Tulsa business people can take the edge off after a heated immigration debate by surfing over to the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security’s new Web site at http://www.homelandsecurity.ok.gov.
The new site allows Oklahomans to sign up for threat level notifications, search a grant history database, view cyber security resources including Internet safety tips and learn how to prepare their families for emergencies.
“Our new Web site gives us the opportunity to communicate more effectively with the public about all aspects of homeland security in Oklahoma. We are working to make Oklahoma safer, and timely, accurate information is a key component. This Web site has many new features to keep Oklahomans better informed,” said Kerry Pettingill, Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security Director.
The new Web site also provides a training calendar and online registration for training geared toward Oklahoma’s first responders. Users can create an account, view available training opportunities and sign up for courses.
The Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security has been tasked by Governor Brad Henry to oversee the U.S. Department of Homeland Security grant programs. The office was created by the Oklahoma Homeland Security Act, signed into law in 2004. To date, the office administers more than $135 million in U.S. Department of Homeland Security grant funding.
OK.gov built and manages the official Web site for the State of Oklahoma and partners with state agencies to bring new government services online. OK.gov is managed by the Oklahoma Office of State Finance and eGovernment firm NIC Inc., which provides solutions for 2,600 state and local agencies that serve more than 61 million in the U.S.
