In a world where disasters can strike at any time and at any magnitude, it is important for Extension organizations to be resilient and assist their community through localized crises. Preparedness at the organizational level has a relational effect to the amount of support available to communities at their hour of need.

This article presents Ohio's commitment to ensure emergency preparedness of its Extension county offices using business continuity plans.
