We have no shortage of reasons why our communities are awesome, but here's one more. Our RSVP held its annual 9/11 community project Saturday at Walmart. Our volunteers collected emergency blankets and gloves for first responders to provide to those in need during emergencies. We received 504 gloves and 207 blankets. Yep, more than SEVEN-HUNDRED items, and more than double than the year before. You're all amazing. Thanks so much for supporting this. We can't wait to see what 2019 brings. ... See moreSee less

****The test has been postponed to Wednesday, October 3, 2018***

On Wednesday, October 3, 2018 the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide IPAWS test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The WEA portion of the test commences at 1:18 p.m. CST, and the EAS portion follows at 1:20 p.m. CST.

The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. This test is in collaboration with the FCC, broadcasters, and emergency management officials in recognition of FEMA’s National Preparedness Month.

The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency. The test is made available to EAS participants (i.e., radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers) and is scheduled to last approximately one minute. The test message will be similar to regular monthly EAS test messages with which the public is familiar. During this time, WEA compatible cell phones that are switched on, within range of an active cell tower, and whose wireless provider participates in WEA should be capable of receiving the test message.

The WEA test message will have a header that reads "Presidential Alert" and text that says: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

The WEA system is used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. The national test will use the same special tone and vibration as with all WEA messages (i.e. Tornado Warning, AMBER Alert). Users cannot opt out of the WEA test.

Harvey County Health Department

Be sure to call before coming over, so we can be sure someone is available to help!

316-283-1637Oh baby, baby, it's Baby Safety Month, so we brought in the totally adorable Rylee to help share a helpful service. Rylee and all our little ones in Harvey County want a safe, comfortable ride to their destination. Our Harvey County Health Department has four staff members that are car seat technicians.

Our technicians can help with proper car seat installation and seat adjustments for no charge. Also, the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office helps us provide convertible and high-back boosters for those that meet income guidelines. Children should be in a seat or booster until they're 4 feet, 9 inches tall or 80 pounds.

Give the health department a call at 316-283-1637 and we'll find a time to have you meet one or our technicians.

We had such an amazing response from our community to this project a year ago, we're going to try to go even bigger this year. RSVP - our network of local senior citizen volunteers - will hold its second annual 9/11 community project Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Walmart Newton - S Kansas Rd. We'll have a display set up where you can buy emergency blankets and gloves. We'll take those items and provide them to first responders in the community, who in turn will provide them to people in emergencies during dangerous weather conditions.

We'll have emergency responders hanging out at the event throughout the day, including a couple K-9s. It's going to be an awesome event. We hope you'll consider joining us.
