Happy National Preparedness month! The focus during this second week is on preparing friends and family for different emergencies.
Showcasing the skills of local first responders are incredibly important to adults AND kids. And sharing important information (like a Family Emergency Communications Plan) with first responders is critical.
Often times, we overlook explaining what actually happens during an emergency.
So take the time to explain to your kids that during an emergency, ALL first responders are there to help. And of course, don’t forget to teach your children to dial 9-1-1.
Reminder: When teaching children to call 9-1-1, do not verbally say “Nine-Eleven” as there is not an eleven button on the phone.
Do it today!
“Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”
