As a part of its severe weather awareness activities, Johnson County's Emergency Management Communication's Department is available to assist residents in programming their weather radios. As the strong storms rolled through the county earlier this week, it's a good reminder to take extra precaution this time of year. Weather radios are especially important since the weather sirens are meant for outdoor notification only. Feel free to take your weather radio to the EMC office on the lower level of the county's Administration Building (111 S. Cherry Street, Olathe) during regular business hours.
