Kansas Emergency Management Conference Begins

Emergency management officials got a peak at the latest technology to help them deal with emergencies today.

The 40th annual Kansas Emergency Management Association Conference offered a chance for participants to meet each other and see what their agencies are doing. This also serves as the association's annual business meeting and training session.

The conference allows participants a chance to find better ways to handle situations that arise.

The conference will last until Friday. 150 people are expected to attend by the end of the week.

The event is being held at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center.
