USU Extension joins disaster data site

LOGAN — Utah State University Extension has become part of a collaborative Web site to provide information in response to disaster and biosecurity threats that cross state boundaries.

Leona Hawks, Extension housing specialist, said the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) is a multi-state effort by land-grant universities across the country to improve the delivery of services to citizens affected by disasters. The site is designed to serve Extension agents, educators and citizens by providing access to resources. It also has information on homeland security and emergencies such as West Nile virus, Newcastle disease, drought and wildfires.
