On this site you will find links to who we are, our Mission and Vision, our Board of Directors, annual events that are sponsored by our organization, and other projects that we have supported. KASC provides a great opportunity for networking and promoting safety throughout our region. In 2012, we were awarded the International Safe Communities of America Award through the National Safety Council, highlighting the successful relationship we have forged with area businesses, organizations, and individual members. We welcome your support of KASC.
