As students, we practiced what to do in the event of a fire or a tornado. The goal was to learn what to do in an emergency. As adults, we know how to protect ourselves when a tornado warning is issued or what to do if a fire occurs. However, we may not know the steps we can take to protect our family and business finances from unexpected events. K-State Research and Extension family and consumer sciences agent in the Central Kansas District, Deb Wood, and the family and consumer sciences agent in the Southwind Extension District, Joy Miller, say just one flood, fire or tornado can wipe out a lifetime of savings. On March 9th, as part of the Living Well Wednesday webinar series, they’ll discuss how to prepare your finances for times of disaster. 

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.
