May 24, 2019 – The Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency and other municipalities are aware of the demand for public sand bags.
City of Tulsa employees have been working around the clock by filling 500-700 sand bags per hour for the Mabee Center public location. We ask residents in need of sand bags to please be patient as employees are working to keep up with demand.
The sand bags being provided at the two locations below are at NO COST to residents across the metro. It’s being reported that some citizens are taking the free sand bags and attempting to resell them. If you see this happening, contact your local authority. The sand bags are free to residents who need them.
Current sand bag locations in the Tulsa metro are:
Tulsa – Oral Roberts University Mabee Center parking lot, 7777 S. Lewis Ave.
Jenks – Jenks Softball Field, 1701 N. Birch St.
For the Jenks location, bags are available to fill, but the public is responsible to bring their own shovel(s). This service is open today from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The weekend hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
