Preparing Kids for Future Disasters

In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has launched a program to help children understand the importance of preparation for future disasters.

Through FEMA for Kids, elementary school students learn how to create a family emergency plan, assemble a disaster supply kit, and take care of pets during and after a disaster.

Since the program’s implementation, FEMA has visited 21 schools in affected New Jersey communities, giving 28 presentations.

Following the success of FEMA for Kids, FEMA Connect has been developed to target high school students.
