Please join us for this webinar series on a variety of disaster-related topics. Extension experts will focus on practical tips and information you can use to be prepared for disasters--from planning to evacuation. Webinars are free and open to everyone.

We will begin with a national drought update and new resources for addressing the impacts. We will discuss the impacts of disaster on youth. We'll also examine biosecurity plans, checklists, and protocols. We'll feature discussions on animals in radiological emergencies, livestock diseases and prevention, and farm evacuations. Disasters also impact communities and our work sites, so we'll also talk about developing community response teams and personal and office emergency plans.

Webinars will be on the second Tuesday of each month (except October, when we will meet on the first Tuesday) at 1 PM Eastern time. The webinars are brought to you by the EDEN eXtension community of practice and by the Extension Disaster Education Network. Click on the titles below for connection instructions.
