Kansas Assists In Preparations For Hurricane Sandy
Kansans are helping on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy approaches. Sharon Watson is with the Kansas Adjutant General's Department. She says Kansas is sending a response team to Maryland.
"To support them in planning, operations, logistics, finance, administration. Those types of behind-the-scenes roles that really help keep the disaster response running smoothly,” says Watson.
Watson says aircraft from some East Coast military bases have also been moved to Forbes Field in Topeka to keep them out of harm's way. She says more Kansas resources could be deployed as needed.
