Emergency Preparedness Resources You can Use: General information on emergency preparedness is available through NY EDEN (Extension Disaster Education Network), a resource of Cornell Cooperative Extension. This is a collaboration with NYS Emergency Preparedness and FEMA. At the NY site, you can also access the national website and see all the information available through our network of collaborators. At that site there are links and specific fact sheets that you would need in an emergency, like: potential source of water in a drought, what to do with food in the refrigerator or freezer when the electricity goes out, how to care for pets when supplies are limited, etc. Please check out these resources or call the office with specific questions.
