Information for Families


Family is as important to us as it is to you. Family preparedness and safety is equally important, therefore we have taken the opportunity to provide some activities, lessons, and checklists that are not only interesting and fun, but help you prepare yourselves for emergencies and disasters as a family. Parents and children alike will find useful information to help make their surroundings a safer place to live, work, and play. For additional information and activities for children or educational material, visit our "For Teachers" and "Children's Corner" pages, but remember parents, "Children's Corner" is for children even though it is fun for all! You may also find these websites useful when preparing your family's plan, Ready America, Ready York County, American Red Cross Family Safety and Preparedness Guide and the American Red Cross Masters of Disasters Quick Start Kit.
