Teach Youth About Preparedness

Being in a State of Readiness includes talking to your children and grandchildren about preparing for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated. Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved. For example:

  • Review your family emergency communications plan with kids at your next household meeting.
  • Kids, parents, & educators, visit the Ready Kids web pages in Spanish: www.ready.gov/es/ninos
  • Need tips for talking to your kids about natural disasters? Visit www.ready.gov/kids/parents
  • Many Americans aren’t familiar with their child’s school evacuation & reunification plans. Are you?
  • Kids can become Disaster Masters with this @Readygov preparedness game: www.ready.gov/kids/games 
  • Your community needs YOU! Find opportunities to help your community here: www.ready.gov/youth-preparedness
