Today’s the day — the 2015 Prepare Kansas online challenge starts today!

Welcome to the 2015 Prepare Kansas challenge. The program focuses on a few activities every week during September. For example: access alerts and warnings, develop communication plans, assemble or update supplies, and drill or practice an emergency response.

Challenge activities for September 1 – 6 are to:

  • complete a family or workplace communication plan to use in the event of a disaster and communicate the details with everyone who needs to know about it, and
  • purchase a bin, bag, or box and add 5 items to your emergency supply kit.

Throughout the week we will post helpful information about how to accomplish each of the challenge tasks.
