Delivering Disaster Education

A session at ACE / NETC version 2.011

Monday 13th June, 2011

1:30pm to 3:15pm (MST)

Most people don’t think about a disaster unless it’s headline news—and then it may not make an impression unless it is close to home. Often we in Extension don’t think much about disaster, but like it or not, when a disaster happens, Extension is involved. So making an impression that affects a change in people’s attitudes toward disaster preparedness and their ability to recover from a disaster is an important challenge for Extension, and there are success stories to be told. Attend this panel discussion to learn what it takes to deliver effective disaster education.

Panelists Rick Atterberry, Steve Cain and Becky Koch have successfully used a variety of approaches to help their respective states prepare for and recover from floods, power outages and other disasters. Virginia Morgan will moderate the discussion. Bring your questions, comments and ideas for effectively delivering disaster education to the session. Make it a two-way learning opportunity!
