NPM 2008 is a mere five days away! This is an exciting month in emergency management because it is a time where we can truly spotlight important issues such as personal and family preparedness. In Johnson County, we are also taking September as an opportunity to share with the public all the great emergency preparedness activities that the county performs on a regular basis. Most of these programs are the responsibility of agencies other than Emergency Management, which just emphasis the cooperation and communication necessary to truly make Johnson County -- A Community Prepared.
How prepared do you think the county is right now? Are you aware that departments such as public health, environmental, and public works routinely provide emergency preparedness programs to the community?
