Cheyenne County

WHAT WE DO

Cheyenne County Emergency Management plans and directs disaster response or crisis management activities, provides disaster preparedness training, and prepares emergency plans and procedures for natural (e.g., tornados, winter storms, floods, earthquakes), wartime, or technological (e.g.,  hazardous materials spills) disasters or hostage situations.

KANSAS STATE FIRE MARSHAL SMOKE DETECTOR PROGRAM

Free smoke detectors to qualifying homes.

In September 2014, the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) implemented a statewide residential smoke alarm installation program as a fire prevention effort. “Saving the Lives of Kansans – One Home at a Time” allows trained volunteers to install smoke alarms in owner-occupied homes free of charge.

You are eligible to have a FREE smoke detector installed in your home if:

• You live in Kansas (must show proof of residency)

• You own the home you live in (not a rental property)

• You currently have no smoke detector in your home

Contact Emergency Management regarding this program.

LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMITTEE

The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986 was created to help communities plan for chemical emergencies. It also requires industry to report on the storage, use and releases of hazardous substances to federal, state, and local governments. EPCRA requires state and local governments, and Indian tribes to use this information to prepare their community from potential risks.
