The Comanche County Office of Floodplain Management exists to advocate the protection of the natural functions of the floodplain through education, training and service to Comanche County, and works directly with the Oklahoma Floodplain Manager’s Association.
Ultimately, the goal of this office is to protect lives and property loss from the result of floods. It is through education and the services the Floodplain Management office provides that this goal is hoped to be accomplished.
Rachael Huey moved to Comanche County, Oklahoma in 2015 after long and careful research to find the perfect place to call home. Though a long way from her native roots in southern Californian, she has come to love our community as a place that feels closer to her heart and values.
With 25 years of experience as a nationally licensed EMT Basic, Rachael became an invaluable asset to the community while working for Comanche County Memorial Ambulance and Apache Ambulance. Shortly after moving to the Elgin area in 2015, she embraced the selfless spirit of Oklahoma and joined the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department and later, the Paradise Valley Volunteer Fire Department. Between both departments she has 4 years of fire training, experience, and service to the community. That same spirit of service lived with her in California, where she was recognized by the City of Anaheim and the Red Cross, separately, as an extraordinary community member through Volunteer Service Awards.
While living in California, Rachael owned two successful businesses: Angel’s Rescue and ACRS Medical. Her Angel’s Rescue business provided trained EMTs to special events throughout the area, and her ACRS Medical company provided much the same service while also teaching classes such as ACLS, PALS, EKG, CPR, among others. In 2013, ACRS Medical was nominated for the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.
In 2003 she joined the US Navy where she served four years as a Corpsman in San Diego, California.
Rachael is currently engaged to a Comanche County native with a wedding date set in July 2020 that she looks forward to celebrating with her three children and grandchild (Currently postponed due to COVID-19). With her fiancé, she owns land in eastern Comanche County where they raise chickens and hope to add cows and goats soon.
In her spare time, Rachael loves the great outdoors: hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and paddle boarding. She also loves crafting and challenging her son and fiance to a game of Super Mario Bro’s.
