Emergency Preparedness for the Kids!

Below is a link to a website that provides information for kids on how they can help in emergency preparedness:


Some of the information is from states other than Minnesota.

Being prepared for an emergency can help you feel safer because you will have the items you need set aside to use. Your family can work on building a disaster kit together to prepare for unexpected events. Don't forget to check your disaster kit at least once a year to make sure your supplies are ready to use. If food expires, replace it with new items so you're always ready for an emergency.
