The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends that in case of an emergency, we all have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days. A downloadable list of recommended supplies is available here. It is also available in the Helpful Links section of the blog.
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.
