Missouri Extension Disaster Education Network

Helping Missourians deal with all aspects of disasters

The Missouri Extension Disaster Education Network (Missouri EDEN) provides education and technical assistance to individuals and families, local governments, schools and organizations in preparing and responding to natural and man-made disasters.

Disaster can affect every aspect of a community, as well as our state and nation. Disasters also impact University of Missouri Extension offices, employees and programs.

Regardless of size or impact, all disasters are local events, and thus it falls upon the local community and nongovernmental organizations to manage events when they occur. MU Extension is a key resource for the public, emergency services and public officials because of the unique relationship it maintains with each community. Missouri EDEN is a central point for MU Extension emergency management functions, including mitigation programs, preparedness activities and recovery issues.
