Hi, Kids!

Every family needs an emergency plan to keep them READY. SET. SAFE. during hurricane season. Ask your parents or adult family members if they have a plan for emergencies, such as a hurricane. Below are some questions you might what to ask.
  • Where will we stay in a hurricane?
  • Is our emergency kit ready?
  • Do we have flashlights, a battery-operated radio and back-up batteries?
  • Where is our emergency food supply stored?
  • Do we have enough water to last 3 to 5 days?
  • Where is the safest place in our house?
  • What are we going to do with our pets?

Hurricanes and other emergencies can be scary, but talking about your fears with a parent, adult family member or school counselor or teacher will help.
