PREPAREDNESS – Jan. 26, 2015

Filed in EM News Comments Off


So far, Mother Nature has been kind to us but let’s not get complacent. While the weather is in “heat wave” mode (considering it is the end of January), take stock of the things you will need if you are stuck in your house for several days or you need to leave your home in a hurry for one reason or another. Do you have updated copies of your important information at hand – bank account, car and home insurance, Social Security card, medical records, contact information? It is definitely a good idea to have a list of your medications, especially if they are vital to your health and well-being, and at least one week’s supply on hand.


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 Face book or www.cowleycounty.org/EM  for the latest tips and weather information.

Wednesday, Jan. 28 – FUN AT WORK DAY – Don’t we always have fun at work? Depending on your sense of humor and the mood of your co-workers, it could be fun to find out who has an emergency kit at work or in their vehicle and compare notes on what they have packed. Everyone might get a few new ideas for items to pack.

Thursday, Jan. 29 – NATIONAL PUZZLE DAY – Have you ever noticed how quickly time flies when working a puzzle – be it crossword, cryptogram or jigsaw? Make sure you have your favorite on hand while waiting for the storm to pass. It’s also NATIONAL CORNCHIP DAY. Get a bag to munch on while working the puzzle.

Saturday, Jan. 31 –BACKWARD DAY – Instead of putting things into your preparedness bag, take it all out and inventory it, update it and add those items you now remembered you wanted/needed.

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.
