SAMHSA Talk, They Hear You

STAND KS
Talk, your kids are listening! Sometimes it's uncomfortable to visit with your kids about the dangers of underage drinking, but the sooner you start the conversation about alcohol, the greater chance you have of influencing their decision not to drink. Opening up communication about this difficult topic is important and beneficial. If you're not sure how or when to start the conversation, visit www.underagedrinking.samhsa.gov

Today is Winter Weather Awareness Day - which, admittedly is kind of funny with the weather we've had this past week - but our friends over at US National Weather Service Wichita Kansas are sharing some useful tips to get prepared for the winter.

This checklist is always a good one. It's great if you have all these items handy right now, but if you don't, just try to start. Even a couple items will be helpful.Having a winter kit prepared is very important when the unexpected occurs. It could be a loss of electricity or an accident on the road.

Did you know?
Kansas law protects everyone who works along our highways. This includes maintenance crews, construction workers, law enforcement officers and emergency responders.
The law requires motorists on four-lane highways to switch to the lane farthest from any stationary vehicle displaying flashing lights, if they can do so SAFELY. On two-lane roads, motorists are required to slow down and proceed with caution.

We had 13,888 ballots cast for our recent general election. That's out of 22,371 registered voters in the county. So our grand total was a really impressive 62.08 percent voter turnout. Comparatively, there was a 54.79 percent turnout in 2014. That's a pretty good-sized increase, so give yourself a round of applause for helping spread the word and getting out to the polls. ...

It's more like give Trump a hand for pissing us women off! Lol

I got at least two texts from political party to vote. Did both parties do that??

Sad when 62% is a good turnout...

Every minute of every day emergency responders across the country work tirelessly to help save lives at the scene of traffic incidents. Every year hundreds of emergency responders representing fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, towing and transportation agencies are struck and either injured or killed while responding. This type of secondary crash intensifies the impact to communities, individuals and the economy.

We read about the tragedies causes by distracted driving almost every day and the emergency response community has the most to lose.

Help raise awareness about the dangers emergency responders face at traffic incidents. November 11th -17th is National Traffic Incident Response Week.
