Kansas ESF 8 (Health and Medical) Network

BPreparedness is beginning a new project called the “Kansas ESF 8 (Health and Medical) Network.”  The Kansas ESF 8 Network is an avenue to provide relevant and current information related to Emergency Support Function 8 (Health and Medical) preparedness efforts in Kansas to interested individuals and entities.  This network will be utilized by BPreparedness to communicate preparedness, planning, response and recovery related information.  For example, BPreparedness will provide updates on Kansas Response Plan revision efforts including revisions of the ESF 8 Annex, Biological Incident Annex and other supporting annexes.  Information concerning upcoming task forces, planning groups and other ESF 8 related activities may also be shared. 

The Network has its own email address, kdhe.KansasESF8@ks.gov, from which to provide these updates and information as well as receive Kansas ESF 8 related questions.  The Kansas ESF 8 email account will be monitored by a team of BPreparedness staff to ensure that questions and concerns are addressed promptly and efficiently.
