PREPAREDNESS – August 25, 2014

PREPAREDNESS

Here we are in the last week of August. Schools are in session and the last big holiday of the season is this weekend. It’s time to look over that list and start giving serious thought to complete all of those important outside projects. One item you might want to note on your calendar is the Open House to be held from 4-6 PM this Thursday, Aug. 28. It will be an opportunity for the public to tour the new offices for the County Clerk, County Treasurer, the 911 Center and Cowley County Emergency Management. In September (this officially being National Preparedness Month) we will be doing special presentations throughout the county. Stay tuned for times/dates/locations.

If you have questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Cowley County Emergency Management team via email or by calling 620/221-0470 or 620/441-4569. We hope you find this and all of our information beneficial. Please encourage your family members and friends to join us on Facebook or www.cowleycounty.org/EM  for the latest tips and weather information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL DAYS OF THE WEEK – August 25, 2014

Special Days of the Week

 

Tuesday, Aug. 26 – NATIONAL DOG DAY – Cat lovers don’t be offended – those regal cats believe every day is their day! This is a good day to think about your pets, in general, and make sure their needs are included in your emergency preparedness plan.

Wednesday, Aug. 27 – JUST BECAUSE DAY – That’s right! “Just because” you are prepared for whatever emergency may come along, you can totally relax today. On the other hand, “just because” you aren’t prepared, you might want to devote a good portion of the day correcting that oversight.

Sunday, Aug. 31 – NATIONAL TRAIL MIX DAY – Trail Mix is probably the single best item to have with you at all times (in addition to water, shelter from the elements and any medication you might be taking). It can provide you with the necessary protein and carbs you might need to keep you going. You can make it to your liking or you can buy a variety of trail mixes. It is easy to store and can be taken with you anywhere anytime. Keep it handy in the preparedness kit, go bag, purse, brief case, vehicle – wherever you might be!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
