A tip for parents from our Safety and Risk Manager during National Preparedness Month:
Equip your kids with knowledge and confidence. Create kits that include things you might need during an emergency (food, water, contact information, clothes, flashlight, etc.) and place them strategically in your home, vehicle, backpacks, and other frequently accessed locations. Talk with your family about their purpose and role play situations that could require their use.
In conjunction with National Preparedness Month, our Safety and Risk Manager thought it might be helpful to share some valuable resources with you. The first step to emergency preparedness is to make a plan. Check it out: http://ow.ly/Sddur
