Alabama Extension’s Emergency Handbook
The Alabama Cooperative Extension System has an iBook to help families, businesses and communities prepare for storms and clean up after they pass. The Emergency Handbook is a comprehensive resource for emergency planning, preparation, and storm recovery.
Built on research-based knowledge from Auburn University and other land-grant institutions including Clemson University, the University of Florida and Mississippi State University, it also draws on resources like the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The Emergency Handbook contains more than 100 pages in four broad categories including People and Pets, Home and Business, Landscape and Garden, and Farms and Livestock. It is available as a free download from iBooks.
