Special Days of the Week

 And here we are, September !!! It’s just a busy month all around. Not only is it National Preparedness Month, but it is also Fall Hat, International Square Dancing, National Courtesy, Chicken (no, not Chicken Dance) and Self Improvement  Month ! So much to choose from!

 Monday, Sept. 1 – LABOR DAY – Hope everyone had a great, safe weekend. Tomorrow we settle back down to work.

 Friday, Sept. 5 – BE LATE FOR SOMETHING DAY – That will depend upon how flexible your teacher or boss is. However, do not be late to one of our Emergency Management presentations this month (see Preparedness posting).

 Saturday, Sept. 6 – READ A BOOK DAY – Always a good idea. Also pack one away in your emergency kit to help you pass the time as you wait out the storm.

 Sunday, Sept. 7 – GRANDPARENT’S DAY – It’s always a good to spend some time with grandparents if you have them. While there, check to see if they have their emergency plan and kit up to date.









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.
