Ready.gov has a children's section, in case you did not know. This website has The Flats ready to download, and print to help you and your children get ready!
There are great resources for parents and fun things for the kids to do!
Flat Stanley and Flat Stella Join FEMAFlatter World and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are working together to make younger generations more informed and prepared for the unexpected. The FEMA/Flat Stanley collaboration will continue to provide kids with state of the art interactive and informative experiences both inside and outside of the classroom in the area of emergency preparedness.
FEMA Flat Stanley & Stella are characters created to help teach kids about emergency preparedness, and more specifically about hurricane awareness, and how they can use their interactive experiences to make disaster preparedness plans and kits fun and informative.
Children can download and create their own customized character from the website or Flat Stanley mobile app. Then they can share their experiences of creating a preparedness kit and share their adventure with other Flat Stanley users.
“FEMA” is now a destination on the Flat Stanley Mobile Application so anyone can create a character and send it on a FEMA tour. On the tour, kids can send their characters to visit FEMA headquarters, interact with agency personnel, experience FEMA field operations, and learn how to prepare their classmates and families for emergencies.
Visit the websites, help your children, take pictures of getting ready! You do not have to share your pics, make a small photo album for the kids to have and look at. Put captions by the photos what you are doing, why, etc. That way they can remember why and can review their own album when they want to.
Anything to help make preparing for emergencies, added to food storage and practicing your fire drills can be a bit easier when the kids and learn through Flat Stanley as he is learning how to prepare!
