The Harvey County Department on Aging is helping facilitate scheduling AARP Smart Driver courses for older adults in the community.

Older driver safety awareness is essential for older adults and their caregivers. Regularly assessing driving performance can help individuals recognize and correct possible shortcomings, which can include a specialized driver's training plan to help individuals continue to drive safely. According to AAA Exchange, older adults are outliving their ability to drive safely by 7-10 years. Living well means planning for driving retirement.

For more information on upcoming Smart Driver courses, contact the Department on Aging at 316-284-6880. The cost of the course is $25.

Harvey County Emergency Management

This week our Emergency Management team had the pleasure of attending several training sessions to learn more about the hazardous weather months still ahead.

On Tuesday, we were able to meet with our partners at the National Weather Service of Wichita for their presentation, “Storm Fury on the Plains.” This course gives valuable information that will help prepare storm spotters and weather enthusiasts for the upcoming storm season and on March 9th will be provided in Harvey County at Newton High School. You can find out more information about the class at:

www.weather.gov/ict/spottertalks.

Wednesday we were joined by KSNW Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman who shared with our team and PIO group important weather history here in Kansas, how a forecast is made and how to further grow our partnership to continue to keep our community safe.Photos from Harvey County Emergency Management's post

Harvey County appears to be just on the edge of another wintery mix today January 24th, but not yet included in the Winter Weather Advisory. What we can expect is rain developing, changing to snow by late morning/early afternoon with the greatest chances for accumulating snow fall along and east of KS Turnpike. Snow cover and slick spots on roadways will be possible so slow down and use caution while traveling. ... See moreSee less

We're featuring Cole Billinger in our next edition of Know Your Deputy. Cole is one of our detention deputies. He's been with us for a little less than two years, and has quickly made a positive impression among his peers. His peers voted him Detention Deputy of the Year in 2021.
