Nothing happens in a vacuum. Coordinating statewide disaster home repairs across 77 counties and multiple disasters takes planning, communication, and a centralized operation. ROAD serves as the hub for all incoming damage assessments as well as all outgoing home repair projects in need of volunteers. With the number of disasters Oklahomans are impacted by, this is a wheel that never stops.
ROAD is in constant communication with disaster case managers across multiple agencies to provide the assistance needed to each disaster survivor who cannot recover on their own. ROAD administers a shared database that tracks each disaster survivors project and each volunteer team that serves. This database is instrumental to ensure the last disaster survivor is helped as effectively as the first and that no one falls into a crack.
ROAD is a member of the Oklahoma Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (OKVOAD) where we collaboratively work alongside multiple agencies in the effort to serve disaster survivors who cannot recover on their own. This collaborative work means Oklahoma is providing the best all around services in the best coordinated effort possible.
