Move “make emergency kit” off the to-do list and over to the DONE list next week, Wednesday May 23, from 5pm – 8pm, thanks to a family-oriented Emergency Preparedness evening co-hosted by the students from Blackwater Elementary and the N’Quatqua Children’s Centre.
The Blackwater school kids have been working hard to learn about emergency preparedness, and will be teaching us some of what they know.
The event is open to anyone with a kid.
Stations have been designed by the students and their teacher, to help attendees move the dial on their personal preparedness – from reading child-appropriate books, writing a plan for home, writing your ICE contacts down, tasting emergency food, trying out a LIFE straw, as well as a a relay race where teams have to pack their emergency Go Bag.
With lots of hands-on activities and take aways for parents, it’s a great opportunity for kids and families to learn about emergency preparedness together.
To paraphrase my favourite taco truck, don’t tell me you want to be better prepared. ACTIONS.
