Resources for dealing with drought conditions are added as needs increase due to the changes in dry and drought conditions across Iowa. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offers educational resources to reduce the personal impact of natural disasters by working in partnership with the local, state and federal agencies.
All-Hazards Booklet, made available by the Center for Food Security and Public Health at Iowa State University. This 100 page booklet was developed as a resource for citizens of rural agricultural communities. The booklets’ four sections contain an overview of a particular hazard and several informational handouts in a check list format to help guide individuals in preparing for a particular hazard before it occurs, during the event, and recovering from the situation.
The national Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) also provides resources for extension educators.
