Neosho County Emergency Management
The State of Kansas, through the Kansas Division of Emergency Management, has initiated Sunflower-safe. This program is designed to provide a rebate for the purchase and installation of a residential safe room for Kansas homeowners. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) states that safe rooms can provide "near absolute protection" based on current knowledge of tornados and hurricanes.
