CCE educates about disaster preparation and recovery
When disaster strikes, NYS citizens turn to Cornell Cooperative Extension for reliable information and research-based educational resources to aid in preparation and recovery efforts.
Through the New York Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN), CCE plays an active role in assisting its federal and state partners to ensure that all New Yorkers receive the help they need in the aftermath of disasters like Hurricane Sandy.
CCE’s NY EDEN equips county and regionally-based Extension educators to participate in local disaster management and recovery efforts, and provides citizens with education and resources on up-to-date best practices for families, farmers, businesses, and communities. 
Do you want to know what to do about power outages, thawing freezers, tree damage, and generators?
Have you experienced flooding and want guidance about flood recovery, mold, and insurance issues?
Are you a farmer who has experienced the effects of Hurricane Sandy and have agriculture-related questions and concerns? 
Visit the CCE NY EDEN​ website to get factsheets and other resources for home or business use. We have compiled evidence-based resources from across the nation, combining the research expertise and experience of more than 50 land-grant universities, in addition to Cornell.
