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 (https://bit.ly/1cvEYwV ) 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.
