tree on house Alabamians are cleaning up after violent storms raked the state just days after the anniversary of the deadly April 2011 tornado outbreak. Dr. Gary Lemme, the director of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, reminds citizens of the recovery resources Extension offers.

"Extension offers great information as people begin the recovery process," he says. "Alabama Extension has experts at the state's two land-grant universities, Alabama A&M and Auburn universities, as well as highly trained professionals in every county who can offer advice and assistance on a wide range of recovery topics–everything from tree removal, food safety to livestock care."

Lemme suggests that people bookmark the Alabama Extension website, on all of their devices–computers, tablets and phones–so Extension resources will be easily available.
