First Friday- April

Posted on April 1, 2011 at 8:22 AM by Kristen Jordan

Happy April Fool's Day!  No jokes here, we're all business.  However, it was kind of fun to check out Wikipedia for the history of the holiday and epic pranks.  Only April Fool's Day can bring together Chaucer, the Edict of Roussillon, and Taco Bell.

April is National Safe Digging Month!  Call 811 before you dig.

April is also Kansas Archeology Month.

CDC is pushing Emergency Preparedness
  1. Get a Kit
  2. Make a Plan
  3. Stay Informed
CDC has also published a radiation glossary just in case you've been wondering what a becquerel is.

In Jefferson County, we've got elections coming up April 5!  Questions?  Contact our County Clerk's office at 785-863-2272.  Wondering where to vote? 

Our Health Department homepage now has a "Did You Know?" feature from the CDC that will probably be updated every Friday.
