Kentucky Awareness Program (KAP)

Kentucky Awareness Program (KAP) is a group of community volunteers who partner with Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) to assist with building safety awareness and preparedness. This is done by providing guidance, tips and vital information revolving around the four seasons in Kentucky. We provide educational experiences and utilize local experts and specialists to safeguard citizens within our Commonwealth. We strive to equip participants with disaster preparedness information and resources from the EDEN, as well as from other sources.

Youth Emergency Preparedness (YEP)

Our Youth Emergency Preparedness (YEP) works with communities across the Commonwealth to develop and educate youth on emergency preparedness for natural and man-made disasters and other emergency situations. Youth are trained and equipped with emergency response skills for critical situations. We provide participants with professional and experiential knowledge of how to respond during different crisis situations in their communities including thunderstorms, active shootings, fire outbreaks and health emergencies.
