$1 million for emergency operations in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City will get one million dollars to protect the city. The money goes toward preventing and responding to terror attacks and natural disaster.

You may remember last year, the federal government cut the finding down to zero dollars. Previously, the KC metro got $7 million.

The fed’s excuse? The Midwest is less likely to get him by terrorists.

“The worst tragedy we’ve ever had in terms of a domestic terrorist attack was in New York City, but the truth of the matter is the Midwest is vulnerable. All you have to do is look down the road to Oklahoma City and see what happened to the Murrah Federal Building,” Representative Emanuel Cleaver said.

In the past, the money paid for items like a rescue truck for the fire department as well as training.
