KANSAS HAZARD MITIGATION TEAM
The Kansas Hazard Mitigation Team (KHMT), under joint leadership of the state's Department of Agriculture's Division of Water Resources and the Kansas Division of Emergency Management, is the long-standing entity managing participation in state-level hazard mitigation. As the KHMT has existed longer than the inception of Silver Jackets and has many of the same objectives, the state has chosen to not stand up a separate "Silver Jackets" group under a different name. The USACE Silver Jackets Coordinators participate on the KHMT. This fact sheet describes Silver Jackets in Kansas.
