Used by fire departments, relief organizations, government agencies, and communities across the U.S., The Red Guide to Recovery helps countless people prepare for and recover from disaster events.

Are You Prepared for a New School Year?

September 22nd, 2012

Flat Stanley PreparednessOne of FEMA’s recent blogs is a great reminder for parents and kids to think about emergency preparedness.  Has your child started at a new school?  Do you know what their emergency plans are, how they contact parents, and where they take kids if they need to leave the school or day care building?  All good things to know before you need to know.

See the FEMA post, Being Prepared for the New School Year posted by “Flat Stanley and Flat Stella” for some fun reminders, and see The Red Guide’s Preparedness Resources for lots of great resources and tips.
