"TIP OF THE DAY"
Have you heard? National Parents’ Day is July 24. In observance of this occasion, we encourage you to take specific actions to prepare your family for emergencies. America’s PrepareAthon! and the Ready Campaign highlight several ways you can prepare for the unexpected.
Some of these actions include:
- Creating a family emergency communication plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it’s important to plan ahead about how you will connect with each other;
- Building a disaster supply kit. A disaster supply kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. You may need to survive on your own after a disaster. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days; and
- Practicing your emergency response plan. Making emergency plans is great, but practicing your plan by conducting drills will help your family’s response time when seconds count.
Disasters can be stressful for kids. Try to make emergency planning fun for children in your family! Visit ready.gov/kids for exciting games, quizzes, and other resources to help young children and teens understand the importance of being prepared.
Disasters also impact older adults. Visit ready.gov/seniors to learn more about preparing older Americans for the unexpected.
