 Oklahoma City Area Division of Environmental Health Services

Oklahoma City Area Division of Environmental Health Services

The goal of the Division of Environmental Health Services (DEHS) is to protect the health and prevent disease among American Indians through the development and implementation of a comprehensive environmental health program. This objective is met through an assessment of current environmental conditions, identification of hazards and risks, utilization of available resources, development of program priorities with tribal input, establish specific program activities with attainable goals, provision of technical assistance to the Indian people concerning environmental health matters, and evaluation of the effectiveness of the environmental health program.

Our job is to provide a comprehensive environmental health program to tribes and tribal organizations to effectively address environmental health and safety concerns affecting public health. This type of program is based on a consultative environmental health approach. One of our primary activities using this type of approach is surveying facilities and programs. While it is true that we have no enforcement authority over tribes and tribal facilities, we do have a responsibility to accurately and completely identify deficiencies in operations or physical facilities, and to provide sound recommendations to both the program managers and the appropriate tribal officials in order for them to make informed decisions.
