Youth should be empowered to learn the hazards that affect their community, understand how to stay safe in an emergency, practice critical emergency response skills, and lead preparedness-building activities in their communities. Emergency preparedness games, materials, and programs for students include:
• Ready Kids: Games – These games will test kids’ know-how in a wide range of emergencies as well as teach students how to build an emergency kit.
• Teen CERT – This program teaches teens about the potential disasters that could affect their area and how to safely and responsibly respond to them.
• Prepare with Pedro – This activity book teaches students how to be prepared for emergency events through fun activities such as crosswords, coloring pages, and matching games.
• Children in Disasters: Games and Activities – These interactive games and activities teach children how to stay safe during emergencies.
