Prepare Kids and Youth

  • ​Talk to your kids candidly about disasters like flooding and its impacts, like the risk of injury and death so that everyone takes the discussion seriously
  • Get kids to pack and store their own 72-hour ‘go bag’ so that they are part of the process
  • Assign roles for kids when disaster hit (older kids can help with sandbagging for example)
  • Make sure everyone understands flash flood responses, evacuation plans and shelter plans
  • Learn and practice first aid skills with your kids (first aid, how to use a defibrillator, CPR)
