County debates emergency management funding

I wouldn't call emergency management a stupid program. :roll:

Every county in Kansas and the United States has an emergency management agency. Obviously some counties have larger departments than others. Most receive some funding from the State and Federal government. :shock:

There are many ways to save money without cutting the emergency managements budget. 8-)

I wasn't singling out EM, but everything has to be on the table to cut or completely remove. Everyone has their "must keep", that is the problem. Everyone in government has their own little empire and the defend it at all cost.

I think the Clown Commissioners need to use a little common sense when dealing with budget cuts. :shock:

We have plenty of "White Elephants" in Shawnee County, that are not essential to public safety. :roll:

The dual airports, neither providing scheduled commercial airline service are just one example. :oops:

Emergency management seems to be the least of County's budget issues. That's not to say the agency can't tighten it's belt and save some money. Most of it's training and education funding is provided through grants from the State and Federal government. The County just has to cover the administration and operating costs of the department. 8-)

Emergency Management is a necessary evil for a county the size of Shawnee.
Sterbenz is an idiot, but he does have all the training and credentials for the job.
All of which were paid for during his tenure with the TFD. As has happened so many time before when someone gets special training at City expense. At least he stayed in Shawnee County.
All COPS are police officers, but not all police officers are COPS.

I just hate to see 'budget cuts' falling on the emergency services, when they waste millions on airports and the Expo center. :shock:

They just don't have their priorities straight. 8-)
