THRC activities occur through table-top disaster response preparedness sessions involving a wide range of government, health, human service and faith based organizations. THRC activities have brought the customary programs of human service organizations into the planning and response cycles of emergency programs operated by law enforcement, fire safety and medical emergency agencies.
The THRC has addressed local needs resulting from floods, activation of Tulsa-based military units, numerous tornadoes, local needs related to the Oklahoma City Bombing, mass evictions from apartment complexes, and more.
We have enabled agencies, government services, union members, elected officials, clergy, professionals, and others to collaborate in order to better serve clients and make efficient use of scarce resources.
Participants in THRC have included the American Red Cross, Tulsa Area United Way, Family & Children’s Services, The Salvation Army, Tulsa Metropolitan Ministries, Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency, law enforcement, and many others.
