OVERVIEW

INCOG supports the Regional 9-1-1 Board which shares equipment and services across eleven jurisdictions located in Creek, Rogers, and Tulsa counties. INCOG also provides 9-1-1 mapping for area jurisdictions.

With the area’s abundance of woodlands and ranch land, strengthening rural fire departments becomes crucial in combating the effects of wildland and grass fires. INCOG administers the Rural Fire Defense Program assisting more than 70 mostly volunteer fire departments in Creek, Osage, and Tulsa counties.

INCOG administers the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) grant for Tulsa County communities. The Department of Homeland Security established this program to help urban areas prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from disasters.

INCOG also facilitates meetings of the Northeast Oklahoma Association of Chiefs of Police bringing together law enforcement agency administrators to share information, concerns, and ideas. The meetings foster better communication among the departments and agencies.
