Being Prepared.

Washington, D.C., July 7, 2006 -- A Red Cross

Our local library hosted a Red Cross Emergency Preparedness workshop.  We found it very helpful.  The idea is that everyone in a home should have a 72 hour emergency kit.  You would be able to survive for 72 hours before help arrived in the event of an emergency.

Red Cross sells various kits that you can store in your home.  This blog post by the Red Cross on the FEMA site lists all you need to make your own 72 hour kit. 

Lastly, they gave out a handout for kids.  This would be a great activity to fit into your health curriculum this year. 

You can also buy supplies at Emergency Essentials.
