EDEN & DART (Disaster Response)

The New York Extension Disaster Education Network (NY EDEN) is a collaborative educational network based at Cornell University, dedicated to educating New York residents about preventing, preparing for and recovering from emergencies and disasters that could affect their families and communities. NY EDEN is affiliated with both the national USDA Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) and with Cornell University Cooperative Extension.

NY EDEN works to link the emergency preparedness resources of New York agencies and organizations with the community networking and outreach capabilities of Cornell Cooperative Extension Education Centers throughout the state.

The goals of NY EDEN are to:

  • Disseminate educational materials relating to emergency preparedness and recovery in order to reduce the impact of disasters on individuals and communities.
  • Provide emergency preparedness training and resources for Cooperative Extension Staff, businesses and community residents.
  • Assist CCE Associations in establishing partnerships and plans to assist their communities, through education, in emergency/disaster preparations and recovery.
  • Distribute credible resource materials before, during, and after a disaster.
