The 2015 Prepare Kansas challenge concluded on September 30th. The program focused on a few activities every week during September. For example: accessing alerts and warnings, developing communication plans, assembling or updating supplies, and practicing emergency responses. This was the second year for the statewide online challenge. In all, participants came from 51 Kansas counties as well as other parts of the country.
This year’s Prepare Kansas online challenge may be over but K-State Research and Extension continues working with Kansans to be as prepared as possible for emergencies. The Prepare Kansas blog is available any time of year for tips to help mitigate the effects of disasters for you, your family and your workplace. We are already making plans for the 2016 Prepare Kansas online challenge. Registration information will posted in July.
