For Immediate Release
KDHE Office of Communications
In response to the recent floods in southeast Kansas, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is posting today on its Web site, www.kdheks.gov, a Web page of information and resource links to assist with safeguarding the health and environment of Kansans during a natural disaster. A link on the homepage will direct viewers to the disaster recovery information page.
"In times of disaster or crisis, it's critical to get accurate and timely information into the hands of those residents affected by the disaster. Our goal is to use this new Web page to support those needing information to recover and get back on their feet quickly and safely," said KDHE Secretary Roderick L. Bremby. "We will keep this page updated and posted as long as necessary."
The Web page includes information on environmental, health and personal property safety and support services along with media advisories. The page will be continuously updated with materials as these become available during this disaster.
