OKC mayor forms task force to study storm safety
OKLAHOMA CITY – Learning lessons from the deadly storms last week.
That’s the goal of a new task force.
Oklahoma City mayor Mick Cornett formed the task force.
It’ll consist of city and state leaders, as well as members of the business community.
The group will study the idea of mandating storm shelters in all new homes and schools in the city.
Their job is to find a way to save Oklahoma lives.
“The highest gravity is having to bury kids from the schools,” Cornett said. “We were unable to protect them. We can second guess, but we’ve got learn from this.”
The task force will also review how police, fire and EMSA responded to see if there’s room for improvement.
Right now there’s no timetable for the group to finish their work.
