LCSO Press Release - Oklahoma Relief Information

LIBERTY COUNTY:  I have been contacted by concerned citizens who want to help the victims of Moore, Oklahoma with food, clothing, food for their animals, etc., after the devastating tornado that struck their area and have killed and injured so many of their residents,

Upon contacting the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department in Oklahoma at (405) 321-8600, I was advised by their Public Information Officer, Megan McCormick, that the town of Moore is in “lock down” mode and nobody is allowed into that area. However, the Sheriff’s Department has their Command Center set up on the Home Depot parking lot at Telephone Rd. and 19th. Street in the City of Moore, and all donations can be brought to that location for distribution at this time. There is a POSSIBILITY that as time passes, there will be a different site established but in this early stage, this is where all rescue and relief activities have been set up.

Sheriff Bobby Rader of the  Liberty County Sheriff’s Department wishes to thank all our citizens whose hearts are going out to those victims in their time of need.

For additional information and any future changes in operations, please contact the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department at the above number.

Capt. Ken DeFoor
Public Information Officer
Liberty County Sheriff’s Dept.
