As the Great American Eclipse approaches on Apr. 8, 2024, the Oklahoma National Guard is gearing up to provide support and assistance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for millions of Americans.

The eclipse, which will be visible across a wide swath of the United States, is expected to draw massive crowds and present a multitude of challenges for local and state authorities. Some regions have already ordered emergency and disaster declarations ahead of the influx of people in rural areas.

In response to this pressing issue, the ONG is taking proactive steps to ensure a smooth and successful eclipse event takes place.

To prepare for the eclipse watchers flocking to their state, the ONG has been working closely with state and local authorities to develop comprehensive plans and strategies. This includes identifying potential risks and vulnerabilities, establishing clear lines of communication and conducting training exercises to ensure that all personnel are prepared for the event.

One of the key challenges the ONG will face is managing the sheer number of visitors arriving to watch the total eclipse. This 120-mile-wide path will stretch from Texas to Maine, passing through several major cities and drawing millions of visitors from around the world. To manage this surge in population, the ONG will be deploying additional personnel and resources to key locations along the path.

In addition to managing the crowds, the ONG will also be responsible for ensuring public safety during the eclipse. This includes providing emergency medical support, coordinating search and rescue operations, and assisting with any natural disasters or other emergencies that may occur during the event.

As reported by Newsweek:

Lt. Col Jabonn Flurry, commander of the 63rd Civil Support Team, said: “This influx of visitors has the potential to overtax local resources and thanks to the training and experience our Guardsmen have working alongside local agencies all across Oklahoma, the CST is uniquely qualified to support our fellow Oklahomans.”

Charisma News previously reported the words of Pastor Troy Brewer, who explained how historically, and biblically, God has used celestial events to get the attention of His people.

A major highlight of Pastor Brewer’s talk is the upcoming Great American Eclipse which will take place Apr. 8. Referring to Jesus’ words about signs in the sun, moon and stars in Matthew 24, Brewer pointed out the significance of this celestial event, signaling the start of a crucial seven-year cycle since the last major American eclipse in 2017.

For those skeptical about the celestial signs, Brewer connected the upcoming eclipse to a verse in Exodus 4:8, where God tells Moses that if people don’t believe the first sign, they will believe the second. This biblical tie-in adds weight to the belief that this eclipse isn’t just a regular occurrence but a divine message.

Meanwhile, the ONG’s efforts are not limited to the day of the eclipse itself. In the days and weeks leading up to the event, the ONG will be working with local and state agencies to educate the public on safety precautions and best practices for viewing the eclipse. This includes distributing information on proper eye protection, safe viewing locations and other important safety tips.
