The theme this week for National Preparedness Month is “Teach Youth Preparedness." Teach your kids how to communicate during an emergency. Review these topics with them: Sending text messages; Emergency contact numbers; Dialing 9-1-1 for help. According to FEMA, "Unless you are in immediate danger, send a text. Texts often have an easier time getting through during emergencies, and you don’t want to tie up phone lines
needed by emergency responders (like 911)." Visit ready.gov/kids for more information and for preparedness plans and checklists. #BeReady #YouthPrep #nationalpreparednessmonth #getreadystayready #beprepared #preparednotscared
