Kid Power! Disaster Preparedness
March is American Red Cross Month. The American Red Cross does a lot to help victims of natural disasters, but it also helps educate people about preparing for disasters. Being prepared is definitely Kid Power!
Would you know what to do in an emergency? Are you prepared? See how you stack up with the Red Cross Ready Checklist. If you can answer "YES" to each of these questions, then you are ready for anything!
- I know what disasters or emergencies are most likely to occur in my community.
- I have a family disaster plan and have practiced it.
- I have an emergency kit (including extra supplies for my pets).
- At least one member of my household is trained in first aid and CPR.
If you're not sure about some of these, this poster tells you everything you need to know to be Red Cross Ready. Talk to your parents! Get your emergency kit together. Practice your disaster plan, and make sure you're all prepared!
