The best defense against wildfires is preparation

LAWTON, Okla._In the event that a wildfire breaks out, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak wants to make sure you are prepared.

Doak made a stop in Lawton Wednesday to offer a few tips and praise the men and women in uniform who keep us safe, "The work that they do around the state of Oklahoma is just tremendous. The backbone of the state are fire and police and they do such a great jobs. The counties will come together and work but we do know that this week is with the high winds and lack of rain, it's putting our state in a precarious situation."

Doak said the best way to fight a wildfire is by being prepared. Make sure your insurance policy is up to date and your content inventory is complete. You can always stop by your local fire station as well for safety recommendations.
