DUNCAN, OK (KSWO)- This is Emergency Management Week in Oklahoma and a group of area emergency managers gathered in Duncan for the Southwest Emergency Management Workshop.

The workshop focuses on public assistance training which teaches emergency managers how to document damage following a disaster so counties can receive compensation from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

 Sean Douglas, the Director of Tuttle Emergency Management, was also presented with the Southwest Emergency Manager of the Year award.
Douglas says he was surprised and says the award belongs just as much to his whole team as it does to him. 

He added, "What I do, I can't do without my staff and the other people that work in the city of Tuttle I have their support and they have mine and we have one of the best emergency management staff in the state because of that."

Douglas will be just one of the emergency managers from across the state whose name will be added to a drawing for State Emergency Manager of the year.
That winner will be announced in August.
