Don’t Be Scared…Be Prepared
Safe Kids Kansas reminds families that severe weather can happen any time of year. It’s important to develop an emergency plan for severe weather in advance and practiceit often with your children, just as you do for other emergencies, such as a house fire. Be sure to discuss what steps to take in different environments, such as home, work, school or outdoors.
Assemble an emergency disaster kit in advance. If you need to take shelter, be sure every family member puts on hard-soled footwear and take your emergency disaster kit with you.
Suggested items to include in your emergency kit include:
Additional supplies and equipment may be necessary for family members with disabilities or medical conditions.
Don’t forget your pets will also need supplies, including food, water, collars and leashes. For smaller animals you may want to have a crate or a cage to help keep them safe and close.
Just a little planning can go a long way in keeping your family safe during severe weather.
