Week four of National Preparedness Month reminds us to include the whole family in disaster planning—including children and youth. Getting youth involved in planning provides both reassurance and the opportunity for everyone in the family to get on the same page about what to do in case of emergency. Here are some tips to get started:
- Review your family emergency communications plan with kids at your next household meeting.
- Kids, parents, and educators, visit the Ready Kids web pages in Spanish.
- Need tips for talking to your kids about natural disasters? Click here.
- Many Americans aren’t familiar with their child’s school evacuation & reunification plans. Are you?
- Kids can become Disaster Masters with this @Readygov preparedness game.
- Get involved in Teen CERT. Find opportunities by learning about Teen CERT online.
- Your community needs YOU! Find opportunities to help your community.
