Emergency Preparedness for Kids
Having children understand the importance of preparing for and coping with emergencies is essential to keeping your family safe. Educational activities can be helpful in teaching children about how to prepare and what to do in an emergency.
Take the time to work with children on the age-appropriate activity book and encourage discussions to lessen the scary impact that an unfamiliar disaster can have on them. Include your children when making your preparations and creating your own kit.
