Teach Youth About Preparedness.

The last week of National Preparedness Month is all about helping our youth become prepared! Talk to your kids about preparing for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated. Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved.

Disasters can be scary for kids, but children are much better at adapting to situations when they know what to expect. The concepts and definitions below will help youth have a good foundation:

Hazards: Hazards are the events that may lead to emergencies and disasters. A hazard is a source of danger, like a flood.

Emergency: An emergency is a time when something serious happens and immediate help is needed.

Disaster: A disaster is an emergency that causes great harm to people or an area.
