Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is urging residents to take time this month to prepare for disasters and emergencies.
The governor planned to sign a proclamation Friday declaring September "Emergency Preparedness Month in Kansas."
On Monday, the Kansas Division of Emergency Management will sponsor "Emergency Preparedness Day" at the State Fair in Hutchinson.
Officials recommend preparing home emergency kits that include water, medicines, flashlights, batteries, copies of important personal documents and nonperishable food.
