Announcing KAMM’s New Logo

We are thrilled to introduce our new colorful KAMM logo!!

KAMM is fifteen this year.  At fifteen, it seemed appropriate to revisit KAMM’s logo.  The current logo only emphasizes Kentucky’s number one natural hazard – flooding – and has remained unchanged through KAMM’s first decade and a half.  We wanted a refresh to kick off our 15th celebration. 

To suit our growing and ever-changing membership base, we would like to introduce a logo that is more inclusive to the hazards of the Commonwealth.  Let’s walk through the new KAMM logo that symbolizes the categories of natural hazards. 

  • The familiar rippling water symbol remains, as Kentucky must always prepare for floods as our number one hazard.
  • Note rocks sliding down KAMM’s “K” that represent our geologic hazards (landslides, sinkholes and earthquakes).
  • Straight-line winds, hail, and severe weather are signified by the whirl of a tornado.
  • Wildfire and forest fires are denoted by the orange flames around burning trees.

Finally, we have encapsulated our natural hazards symbols within the boundary of the Commonwealth, representing that we are in this together.  We are KAMM Family.
