Nebraska Extension in Lincoln, Logan & McPherson Counties

Local Interest

As Nebraskans are returning to their homes following the recent wild fires.  Nebraska Extension has available resources to help answer and assist the decisions that need to be made following these tragedies.    

Those affected by recent wildfires are likely unsure where to begin.  It is vital that you follow safety guidelines that are being facilitated by area emergency management agencies. 

When a home or buildings partially remain following a fire, note there is likely damage to the structure. People should try and save what they can but saving food that has been in a fire is not a good idea.
