Kansas met only three of the ten standards.</p><p>This comes on the heels of another report about a month ago from the charitable group, Save The Children. It found that Kansas failed to meet all four of their measures of preparedness for disasters affecting children.</p> Wed, 19 Dec 2012 19:35:23 +0000 Bryan Thompson 10115 at http://kmuw.org
