Tips for Living and Working in Hot Weather Available Through Extension Network



MANHATTAN, Kan. Soaring temperatures and stifling humidity throughout much of the nation have many looking for the best ways to cope under the extreme conditions.



State extension services around the country have pulled together resources which are available through the Extension Disaster Education Network to help families, pet owners, business owners, farmers, livestock producers and others live and work in high heat and humidity.



Links to research-based fact sheets, news releases, and publications, including some in Spanish, are available on the EDEN website.



EDEN is a collaborative multi-state effort by extension services to reduce the impact of disasters through education. Kansas State University is a member of EDEN.
