Oklahoma Association Provides Tornado Emergency Outreach

An Oklahoma Legislator is working with the Manufactured Housing Association of Oklahoma to help provide sample emergency plans for manufactured and mobile home communities to prevent deaths in the event of a tornado. Oklahoma State Rep. Pat Ownbey has made several legislative attempts to mandate the emergency plans, but has now agreed to cooperate on a voluntary basis. Ownbey says in a press release he was concerned his bill would have inadvertently created a liability for manufactured housing communities. The Manufactured Housing Association of Oklahoma (MAHO) and the Oklahoma Emergency Management Association will be sending sample emergency plans to 600 communities throughout Oklahoma. Deanna Fields, Executive Director of MHAO tells MHMSM.com a law would have opened up liability issues and the association was against any legislation. “We also have plans that are more comprehensive and available to communities” Fields says. “We have the means to get the word out.”
