There is a lot of sad news about Haiti on the television now. A lot of kids worry that an earthquake might hit their home.
Almost every place on earth has a chance for a disaster. We live in hurricane country. My dad’s sister and brother live in tornado country. Mom’s mother lives in a place that gets a lot of snow and ice. We have friends that live where it floods a lot.
I think that it is better to be prepared than to worry about a disaster. Are you and your family prepared?
We are. Every spring, our family checks our hurricane emergency kit. Dad replaces the batteries from last year. Mom buys fresh canned goods. We have a list of all the things that we need. We have a special container for all of our supplies.
Are you ready? Here’s a great activity book to help you and your family. Just go to http://bereadyutah.gov/family/documents/ReadySetPrepare02.pdf. If you and your family work together, it can be fun!
