This worksheet, called 'Natural Disaster Worksheet: Ready... Set... Prepare!', was originally offered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Community and Family Preparedness Program and American Red Cross Community Disaster Education. This 39-page activity book is the result of their joint efforts and is aimed to improve disaster preparedness. The book encourages parents and guardians, teachers and leaders to keep emergency plans and evacuation procedures up-to-date and emergency contact information - always on file. The following topics are covered:
Words to Know
Preparing for Disaster
Your Family Communications Plan
Taking Care of Pets
Making a Disaster Supplies Kit
Prevent Fires & Be Safe
Each topic is supplied with a fun game, to help children learn what to do before, during and after each disaster. The worksheet is complimented by a quiz at the end of the book, my family communications plan and certificate of completion templates and an answer key. The 'Learn More' section provides lists of links to topic-related online and print resources.
