SPECIAL DAYS – Week of 8/31/15

Filed in EM News Comments Off


September is just a day away. Not only is it NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH, but it is also the designated month for Classical Music; Fall Hats; International Square Dancing; National Courtesy; Baby Safety; Self Improvement and Better Breakfast!


Monday, August 31 – NATIONAL TRAIL MIX DAY – A good snack anytime, it’s also a good idea to store some in that emergency kit. It keeps fairly well and it is good for you!

Tuesday, Sept. 1 – EMMA M. NUTT DAY – (She was the first woman telephone operator) In honor of Emma, make sure your contact list in case of emergencies is up to date and everyone in the family has a copy.

Sunday, Sept. 6 – SENIOR CITIZEN’S DAY – With age comes wisdom. Not only can we learn from them, but they can also learn from us. Make sure the elderly members of your family are as well prepared as you are for emergency situations. Remember, they will probably need a few more specialty items in their emergency kit – medications, assistive devices, etc.

The Twelve Days of Preparedness

Filed in EM News Comments Off

Cowley County Emergency Management, in coordination with their volunteer groups (Emergency Auxiliary, CERT, CART and MRC), have created an emergency preparedness video. The song is a familiar tune from The 12 Days of Christmas, but delightfully titled, “The 12 Days of Preparedness”.

Thanks to the many individuals and agencies that volunteered their time, locations, knowledge and experience.
