Being prepared for disasters starts at home. Educating students outside of school on what to do before, during, and after an emergency event will help them be prepared when it comes time to return to the classroom. Resources and information for families include:
• Prepare Your Family – This webpage provides materials to help you build your family emergency plan, information for how you can help children cope if they’ve experienced a disaster, and tips to help your children be ready when disaster strikes.
• Caring for Children in a Disaster – This guidance outlines the steps you can take before, during, and after an emergency to help keep your family safe and healthy.
