Improve Your Health - Change Your Life
PROUD TO BE A BROADCASTER
As the events of May 19th and 20th unfolded in Central Oklahoma, the work of the local broadcasters was simply amazing. Television stations and their Radio partners provided unprecedented coverage that saved countless lives. The skill and accuracy of the severe weather coverage was instrumental in making the public aware of the impending storm with very little notice. Broadcasters' experience and the trust they have developed with the public insured that fewer lives would be lost.
WHEN IT REALLY MATTERS ...BROADCASTERS DELIVER
To put the devastation in perspective, over 2,400 homes and business where completely destroyed. And yet, the very unique Oklahoma coalition of television stations with their simulcasting radio partners provided the finest warning coverage there ever could have been. Every single broadcaster in Central Oklahoma was responsible for saving lives. Every single broadcaster took their responsibility very seriously.
BROADCASTERS ARE THE FIRST INFORMERS
When other media outlets were paralyzed by the weather and when other options avoided the responsibility of protecting ..the broadcasters of Oklahoma delivered. For this we should all be very proud.
THANK YOU OKLAHOMA BROADCASTERS
This is why we are in this business and this is why we serve. This is why we have earned the trust of our neighbors and why we will continue to be the backbone for all Oklahomans.

Once again, Magic 95 listeners came through in time of need. Over two days we were successful in collecting items for the Moore, Oklahoma tornado victims filling four trucks full of much needed supplies for The Salvation Army (bottled water, canned goods, non-perishable food items and more) plus we raised $2,320.00 for the American Red Cross! Many thanks to Cache Road Square for allowing us to set up in their parking lot for donations, and especially - thank you - our listeners - for your generosity!

In the Aftermath of the Oklahoma Tornadoes, the Support of Volunteers is Key
WASHINGTON - In the wake of severe storms and tornadoes in Oklahoma, voluntary agencies continue to be a vital member of the disaster response and recovery team, working alongside state, tribal and local emergency responders to assist in caring for the immediate needs of survivors. The public can play an important role with the emergency management team, volunteering their time, money, and energy to help disaster survivors and their families. There are ways individuals can support the ongoing response and recovery efforts, whether they live in the affected area or across the country.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is advising people who want to help survivors to do so through affiliation with the voluntary organizations that are active in the ongoing disaster operations. More information on volunteering and donations can be found at www.fema.gov/howtohelp.
“Voluntary agencies are playing a critical role in the response and recovery efforts in Oklahoma,” said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. “To best meet the needs of survivors, voluntary agencies need the public’s support.”
National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD) serves as the primary point of contact for voluntary organization coordination in FEMA's National Response Coordination Center, supporting Mass Care, Emergency Assistance, Housing, and Human Services needs. National VOAD continues to work with a network of more than 50 national agencies and 55 state and territorial VOADs providing countless volunteers and services to support response and recovery efforts. Financial contributions offer voluntary agencies of your choice the most flexibility in obtaining resources.
“The coordinated support from the American public, Oklahoma survivors, faith-based and community-based relief organizations, the business community and local, state, tribal and federal governments will be necessary to restore the communities in Moore County,” said Daniel Stoecker, Executive Director of National VOAD. “The most effective way to help tornado survivors will be to donate to, or volunteer with, a reputable, recognized organization active in disaster response and recovery activities.”
National VOAD members including voluntary, non-profit and faith-based organizations are working closely with affected states and communities to assist with providing mobile feeding, assist with debris removal and, as needed, to support with temporary home repairs and other needs for disaster survivors.
Examples of ongoing work include:
• continues to work with its membership to coordinate mass feeding teams, debris clean up and volunteer reception centers.
• American Red Cross disaster teams in Oklahoma have five open shelters. Thirty-one emergency response vehicles are on the ground or en route to distribute food and water and five emergency aid stations were open where people can find a safe refuge, food and snacks, emotional support, health care services and information about what other help is available. The Red Cross and FEMA continue to jointly lead the planning and coordination of mass care services, as part of Emergency Support Function 6 (ESF#6), which assists states in their planning and coordinating of mass care services, specifically sheltering, feeding, distribution of emergency supplies, and family reunification services.
• , working with the American Red Cross, is providing teams of volunteers to assist local authorities with road openings, debris removal, and logistics coordination.
• Salvation Army teams continue to provide food, hydration, and pastoral care to those affected by these tornados. Twelve Mobile Feeding Units (Canteens) have provided more than 4,600 meals to survivors.
• Southern Baptist Convention, working with the American Red Cross, is providing two kitchens to provide meals to disaster survivors. The kitchens are able to make tens of thousands of meals a day if needed.
• Samaritans Purse has mobilized teams with equipment to support debris cleanup, roof tarping, and chainsaw work.
• Mennonite Disaster Service has mobilized Early Response Teams with equipment to support debris clean up and chainsaw work.
• Catholic Charities USA has been working with the local Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to provide support to the diocese efforts. Catholic Charities USA staff are deployed to support the assessment and determination of the immediate service delivery program.
• Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has a team of National Disaster Response members in Oklahoma City and is providing emotional and spiritual care for survivors and first responders.
• Adventist Community Services (ACS) are collecting, sorting, and distributing supplies under the management of ACS Disaster Response teams.
• ICNA Relief's Disaster Response Services has deployed teams to assist with disaster clean up. Teams include chainsaw crews to assist to remove downed trees from damaged homes, remove damaged household contents and tree debris, and support roof tarping.
• Brethren Disaster Services deployed two of the Critical Response Child Care Teams to provide support to affected families and children. They will be partnering with the American Red Cross to provide trained and certified volunteers to set up child care centers in shelters and disaster assistance centers. The volunteers are specially trained to respond to traumatized children, providing a calm, safe, and reassuring presence.
• United Way in coordination with the state of Oklahoma has established the OK Strong Disaster Relief Fund to assist with the long-term medical, emotional and educational needs of survivors. Donations can be made by calling (405) 236-8441 or donating online at www.unitedwayokc.org.
Be wary of scams and fraud - Unfortunately, disasters often bring out criminals who prey on the needs of disaster survivors, or the generosity of those looking to help, by offering fraudulent services. If you suspect anyone – an inspector, disaster survivor, or someone posing as one of these – of fraudulent activities, call our toll-free Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721, or your local law enforcement agency.

DOG GONE? AND CAT TOO?
MAYBE WE CAN HELP!
For nearly ten years Magic 95 has provided a lost and found pet service for the purpose of reuniting pets with their owners. Called Dog Gone and Cat Too, we broadcast a list of lost and found animals each weekday at 8:20am and again at 5:30pm. We also post the list online.
In 2005, the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters awarded Magic 95 with a Community Service Award for our Dog Gone and Cat Too feature.
Over the years we have helped reconnect literally hundreds of lost pets and their owners, many of whom might not ever see each other were it not for the fact that our dedicated listeners call us and e-mail us to have us list their lost or found pet.
Dog Gone and Cat Too is generously sponsored by Just 4 K9's & Kitty's 2, located at 1302 NW 47th Street next to Lowe's, and by Meadow Wood Animal Hospital, with two convenient locations: 4104 West Gore and 6731 NW Cache Road.
