SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Wesleyan University has formed a partnership with the Saline County emergency management department.
The Saline County Commission approved the partnership Tuesday night with Kansas Wesleyan, the only school in Kansas to offer a bachelor's degree program in emergency management.
Saline County Emergency Management Director Hannah Stambaugh says the agreement strengthens a relationship the county and college have had for several years.
The Salina Journal reports the new arrangement will help establish and monitor weather stations around the county. It will also develop student storm-spotting activities, create internship programs and promote storm preparedness.
