"To meet the immediate need, folks from within UK and outside UK contributed their thoughts to the document. We hope to formalize this in the coming weeks and have it appropriately vetted for future disasters, but this is what we are using for Extension Agents who need it now."

States are invited to utilize this resource on condition that the DRAFT watermark be retained until Kentucky has completed its peer review and revision process.
