NOTE:  “Oklahoma Women in Public Safety” is the preliminary name of a new organization it is hoped will develop from this first-ever statewide meeting of Oklahoma public safety professional women. During this “birthing” process, OKWIPS is being operated under the umbrella of Tulsa Metro Women on Fire, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit through which Tulsa-area female firefighters raise money in support of charitable causes.
