Six North Carolina emergency managers deployed to Kansas recently, to work at the state emergency operations center and to help Kansas counties responding  to  floods  and  tornadoes.   Kansas requested assistance through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), the same agreement that allowed more than 1,100 emergency personnel from other states to help North Carolina after Hurricane Florence last year.  Thirty-three Kansas counties have received federal disaster declarations and more than sixty have been affected by flooding.  North Carolina Emergency Management Director Mike Sprayberry said, “We received plenty of help from other states after Hurricane Florence and it’s great to be able to pay some of that back.”
