Governor Stitt Releases Statement on Oklahoma Wildfires

Monday, March 04, 2024

Governor Stitt released the following statement as wildfires impact western Oklahoma:

“I am watching the wildfire activity in western Oklahoma closely and working with the Department of Emergency Management and Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry to ensure the right resources are being deployed for those impacted,” said Gov. Stitt. “As emergency crews continue to fight the fires and we survey the damage, I encourage Oklahomans to do what we do best - help out our neighbors. As you do, follow instructions from your local authorities and stay safe.”

At this time, the Oklahoma wildfires have not met the threshold for FEMA funding. However, USDA Farm Service Agency Disaster Assistance Programs may be available for those who suffered agriculture losses in the fires. More information can be found here
