As September is National Preparedness Month, Johnson County Emergency Management will be conducting a series of Townhall gatherings – both physically and virtually—to have an open and authentic discussion about Johnson County’s readiness to respond and recover from emergencies and disasters like those that have recently struck Joplin (MO), Chapman (KS), and the State of Alabama. We would like to engage all those who live, work, and play in Johnson County to discuss preparedness successes and achievements as well as improvement areas.
To provide opportunities to engage, Johnson County Emergency Management will be asking the following three questions:
1) What types of community-impactful disaster most concerns you?
2) What most concerns you about preparing yourself and your family for a disaster?
3) How can Johnson County help you be more prepared?
It’s that simple. To make sure anyone can contribute, we are setting up a variety of ways to meet as a community.
