PREPclips are short informational videos about emergency and rural disaster preparation topics.  We encourage Extension educators, teachers, and volunteers to use PREPclips for teaching programs or sharing on social media.  We simply ask that you credit as a source.  The videos have been developed and reviewed by Extension and emergency professionals, and are excellent for use in combination with our PREPnotes in preparing simple, effective training programs.

Please feel free to share these PREPclips on social media as well as use for workshops and classroom presentations!

New PREPclips will be added regularly, so please check back often!

PREPclip "shorts" are even "shorter" video segments highlighting a single topic or point.  "SHORTS" are great for sharing on social media, or incorporating into teaching lessons.  More are planned!
