September is National Preparedness Month. As part of the national effort by FEMA to help us be better prepared for disasters, K-State Research and Extension is working to get us financially prepared. Extension resource management specialist Elizabeth Kiss says that having records organized and up to date, including health, insurance, and bank information, can not only be helpful in our day-to-day life, but is especially important in an emergency, such as a fire, flood, tornado or prolonged power outage.
Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
