Disaster Preparedness

home fire   thunderstorm   tornado   winter storm

Sometimes, life in the heartland is not for the faint of heart. At least that's the way it seems when homes and communities experience tornadoes, flooding, drought and other disasters like Kansas communities can.

For every disaster that makes the news, there are many more fires, storms and others that we don't hear about. They can be just as devastating to an individual, a family or a neighborhood and recovering from them all is difficult.

K-State Research and Extension has resources and programs to help you become prepared ahead of whatever disaster might strike, because it is not a matter of "if," it's a matter of "when."

Take the Prepare Kansas challenge. An online preparedness challenge offered each year during September – National Preparedness Month. Visit the Prepare Kansas blog to learn more.
