Helping kids prepare for emergencies

  • Teach them about natural hazards like earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, ice storms, and blizzards --and what to do when they occur.

  • Make a family emergency plan, and preparing an emergency kit together.

  • Teach your kids what to do in case of a fire.

  • Make sure your kids know what to do at school if an emergency happens.
