A proclamation and special day at the State Fair are on tap as Kansas officials mark the annual Emergency Preparedness Month during September.

The national event is designed to raise public awareness about the need to prepare for emergencies, such as tornadoes, floods and droughts.

Governor Sam Brownback will sign a proclamation on Friday during a Statehouse ceremony. Joining him will be Major General Lee Tafanelli, state adjutant general and director of the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. Residents are being encouraged to have emergency kits should disaster strike.

On Sept. 10 there will be special booths and displays at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson.
