This year's Resolve to be Ready campaign focuses on 'Family Connection' to reinforce the importance of parents including their children in preparedness conversations in advance of potential disasters. The Ready campaign makes an emergency preparedness resolution easy to keep by recommending families consider these three ideas when making a plan: who to call, where to meet and what to pack.
Click HERE to connect to age-appropriate tools and resources to introduce conversations about disaster preparedness to children. You will find a downloadable family emergency plan, emergency kit checklists and guidelines on how to make preparedness a year-round family activity.
