Emergency Management Team

The mission of the Emergency Management Team for the City of Sapulpa is to provide well organized, quick, and highly responsive assistance to the citizens and visitors during any natural or man-made disaster.

Joint Leadership & Training
The joint leadership of the team consists of the Chief of Police, Rick Rumsey and Fire Chief, David Taylor. All police and fire personnel are required to attend and pass federal National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command System (ICS) classes. Police Officers and Firefighters are constantly receiving additional specialized training from other Federal, State, and Municipal agencies in areas that range from wildfire training, terrorism, flood, and tornado preparation, and many other types of incidents which could leave the city and its citizens in perilous situations.

Assisting Other Teams
The team’s leaders also meet with and train with other state and local Emergency Management Teams and have developed a networking system to allow each to draw manpower and resources from each other in the event of a catastrophic event.

Always Improving
The Sapulpa Emergency Management Team will work towards and always strive to keep moving forward in training, equipment, and team cooperation to provide the best service to the citizens that we are so honored to serve.
