Preparedness for Children

 

Disasters and emergencies can be scary, but the more prepared you are, the safer you will be and the easier it will be to act. By creating an emergency plan (for parents and for kids) and emergency kits, you will have the tools to be safe. 

Remember to ask questions when working with your family. Answering questions and alleviating fears is easier now, than during an emergency.
