In keeping with the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and with new and constantly developing information from Public Health sources, the requirements and recommendations from some of the largest cities in Oklahoma including Oklahoma City, and the information regarding community spread of the COVID-19 virus, the OSFA Board during their March 19, 2020 Executive Board meeting decided:
1) The OSFA Legislative Reception will be CANCELLED; 2) The John F. Futhey II OSFA State Fire School will be POSTPONED until May of 2021; 3) All OSFA committee meetings will be SUSPENDED until at least August 2020 when the situation will be re-evaluated by the Board; 4) The OSFA Offices and Oklahoma Firefighters Museum will be CLOSED to the public until at least May 15 when the situation will be re-evaluated by the Board; 5) Due to restrictions placed on the training providers outside of theirs and our control, ALL grant funded activities will be SUSPENDED until further notice; 6) The OSFA Convention WILL CONTINUE as scheduled for June 10 - 13, 2020 in OKC.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we truly want to protect those most vulnerable in our population and aid in the prevention of the spread of the virus. Should an emergency arise and you are unable to reach anyone in our office, you may contact Executive Director Steve Lumry by email [email protected] or at (405) 326-3408. We hope and pray that everyone stays safe and responds safely as we work through this unprecedented public health crisis.
Respectfully, Mike Kelley, OSFA President Steve Lumry, OSFA Executive Director
We will keep you updated
