Extension Disaster Preparedness and Recovery

Extension Disaster Preparedness and Recovery

Work involving Disaster Preparedness and Recovery by the University of Kentucky, Cooperative Extension Service is a collaboration with our partner institution Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN), to develop resources to support Extension agents as they educate their communities about disaster mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Kentucky EDEN is a part of the Extension Disaster Education Network, a collaborative multi-state effort supported by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and Cooperative Extension Services across the country to reduce the impact of disasters through research-based education. 

This site is intended to serve Kentucky Extension agents and all Kentucky citizens by sharing educational resources that reduce the impact of natural and man-made disasters on individuals, families, and communities.

Our primary goals are to:

  1. Provide credible and reliable information relating to disaster preparedness and recovery for individuals, families, and urban and/or rural communities.
  2. Reduce the impact associated with disaster by disseminating educational materials related to disaster mitigation, preparedness, and recovery.
