OK-First is pleased to announce our Fall 2013 class schedule! OK-First training & weather/radar data access is available free of charge to city, county, state, regional, and tribal agencies with jurisdictional responsibilities in public safety. We have classes available for new agencies & participants to OK-First as well as our existing network of OK-First participants.
Agencies new to OK-First are required to have one person go through the OK-First 4-day Certification Class to become the Certified Participant for that agency. This class is also available for replacement Certified Participants. Additional staff at an agency are welcome to apply to this class, but be advised that preference will be given to accommodating as many agencies as possible.
