Stephen Bean, Acting Emergency Management Director, testified that the ordinance would provide funds for maintenance to City's tornado warning system. It would also provide for units to be placed in the Kansas City Power and Light District. There was also discussion on procedure implementation during outdoor events. Councilwomen Sanders Brooks and Gottstein talked about weather events that happened outside the Sprint Center while they were visiting the area. Mr. Bean assured both councilmembers that the emergency procedures in both areas had been evaluated and practiced for the type of events that occurred. Sprint Center and the Power and Light District have their own broadcast systems and would notify patrons of any problems that arise. He did indicate that the facilities were responsible for their emergency procedures, not the City.
