KANSAS (KSNW) – The Emergency Accident Reporting Plan (EARP) is no longer active for the Wichita area and Salina, according to the Wichita Police Department

The EARP was enacted for the Wichita area on Wednesday, Dec. 21, “due to severe weather and/or hazardous driving conditions as the number of motor vehicle accidents exceeds the Department’s ability to respond in a timely manner.”

This included the City of Bel Aire, the City of Haysville, Derby, Goddard, and Salina.

The EARP was canceled on Dec. 28 at 2 p.m.

Accidents that were eligible included any non-hit and run, non-personal injury motor vehicle accident that does not require towing, and does not involve alcohol or drugs.

Driver requirements:

  • Exchange personal information with the other driver(s) involved or the property owner
  • Complete an EARP accident report form as completely as possible and mail or deliver the completed report to the Salina Police Department within 48 hours

EARP forms were available at local police stations as well as online:
