Family and Consumer Sciences 4-H Program Area Working Group

The 4-H and FCS PAWG identifies areas of needs and provides resources for utilization by Extension Educators when educating their audiences in the areas of disaster preparedness, mitigation and recovery. We create research based fact sheets and courses, and evaluate other authored documents that would be helpful for public use.


  • Family Preparedness Course
  • Life During/After a Disaster Course (in process)
  • Provide relevant research based web resources for individuals and families with regard to disaster
