The Choctaw County Emergency Management Agency app is a new mobile app that is designed to help citizens and businesses in Choctaw County -- as well as visitors to the area -- prepare for and respond to emergencies in the best possible way, whilst allowing them to access alerts to emergency situations and warnings.

Available for free download from online app stores, the app was created by OCV, which specializes in creating public safety and emergency preparedness apps. The app also allows for weather forecast and radar information, in addition to emergency response tips and information on road and school closures.

Given the proliferation and ubiquitous nature of smartphone technology among people these days, it makes good sense to leverage public safety apps as a means of getting key emergency information to as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time.
