Radiation and your government

With the disaster in Japan, Kansans can't help but think of the effects it may have upon themselves and their neighbors. We're concerned for our Japanese friends we look to see how we can help. We Kansans don't need reminders how nature can throw us curve balls and we know how to pick up after a natural disaster; yet the scale and the subsequent nuclear effects of this disaster leaves us scratching our heads and worrying. Learn more about the effects of radiation and our own nuclear reactor, Wolf Creek here.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management, an arm of the Kansas Adjutant General's Office, manages natural or man-made disasters.
