The Health & Safety component of the Resident Services Department recognizes individual knowledge and understanding as a primary factory for maintaining healthy and secure living. By showing Tribal members the facts and risk factors involved with common threats, the program attempts preventative intervention to keep people away not just from danger, but situations where trouble can arise.

The Health & Safety Program consists of the following:

  1. Crime Prevention Awareness - Crime Prevention Awareness instructs individuals how to lower their chances of becoming victims of crime. Sessions discuss statistics, tactics, and strategies for remaining safe along with identifying risk-factors and dangerous situations. Classes also cover crime reporting, emergency responding, and emergency planning.
  2. Healthy Eating - Healthy Eating shows individuals how to plan wholesome and nutritious meals. The classes teach nutrition basics like understanding the food pyramid and label reading. The program hopes to spread knowldge and improve the overall health of Tribal families.
  3. Fitness Awareness - Fitness Awareness classes remind the participants of the benefits of exercise and fitness. This forum discusses simple ways to add a little activity in members' lives as well as other methods of remaining fit and healthy through simple lifestyle choices, like abstinence from smoking, moderate drinking, and exercising more.
  4. Storm Safety - Storm Safety classes demonstrate step by step methods for protecting oneself and others during a storm. Oklahoma storms wreck havoc every year and threaten thousands of unprepared families. In these classes, participants learn how to properly prepare and react to snow storms and tornados.
  5. Youth Recreations - Youth Recreation activities serve to distract and relieve individuals from the pressures of young life. Organized physical activities become positive outlets for youth energy while promoting a sense of togetherness and adding a touch of fun.
  6. Drug & Alcohol Awareness - Drug & Alcohol Awareness guides family members to the resources to help themselves or loved ones with substance abuse issues. A review of statistics and consequences aims to increase knowledge that will in turn eventually lead individuals in need to seek appropriate help.
