The Oklahoma Insurance Department, National Weather Center in Norman and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners are hosting the National Tornado Preparedness Summit on Sunday through Tuesday at the Cox Convention Center.
This conference will bring insurance professionals, first responders, emergency management personnel, local and state leaders and insurance regulators together from throughout the Midwest and nationally.
Learning from past disasters
The goal of the summit is to improve tornado mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery by using lessons learned from past disasters and sharing knowledge of state-of-the-art programs.
The conference also will serve as a national forum for federal, state, and local officials to exchange ideas and recommend new policies to improve emergency management.
Speakers scheduled include The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore.
This event is open to anyone who wants to pay for the registration.
