If you are having a hard time believing that we are in the 4th week of September and our 2015 Prepare Kansas online challenge, we feel the same way! Happily, we still have 10 days left in the month to finish up all of the challenge tasks.
Challenge activities for week 4, September 14-20 are to:
- Plan and practice a family/workplace fire drill, and
- Add items to your grab-and-go bags.
Our weather-related emergency focus this week is fire. Check out Kansas State Climatologist Mary Knapp’s Weather Wonders programs to learn more about fire weather, the dangers of lightning, and preventing fires in the home.
We’ve had questions about how you will report your progress. The Challenge Tracking Sheet is available for you to keep track of what you’ve accomplished during the month. Soon after the Challenge ends, you will receive an email with a link to a survey that we hope you will complete. The survey will ask you to tell us about your progress with the weekly tasks. As we’ve said, you have the entire month to complete the tasks. Even small actions can make a difference so don’t give up!
Thanks to those who have commented on the blog — we love to hear from you!
