Emergency Preparedness in the Classroom

Why You Need to Store Emergency Supplies at Your School

Keeping emergency preparedness kits at school for students and administrators is an essential part of maintaining a safe school. Following a catastrophic disaster or lockdown during school hours, students and school administrators may be stranded on campus for days to weeks until roads are cleared for safe driving. Read More

Advantages of ER Emergency Ready School Kits

ER™ Emergency Ready School Kits include everything students and administrators need to survive for 72-hours if a disaster strikes while at school. Each emergency kit includes a 3-day supply of emergency food and water that is certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to remain fresh for up to 5 years.

Replenishing Your Emergency Supplies

Our kits are designed to make it easy and inexpensive to replenish your supplies every 5 years. Instead of buying new kits, our ER™ Easy Replacement Packs replace only the supplies that expire so that you can continue to reuse the rest of the kit.

Prepare With Pedro

Prepare with Pedro is a free youth preparedness program created by the American Red Cross. This resource is designed to teach young children and their families how to stay safe during disasters and emergencies through fun activities such as crosswords, coloring pages, matching games, and more!
The activity book is available for digital download in six different languages and available to order in English and Spanish for free from the FEMA warehouse.

Emergency Contact Card for Children

An important part of a family's emergency communications plan is identifying key emergency contacts, in case children are not with family when a disaster strikes. Electricity may be out, cell phone towers could be down, and local systems may be overwhelmed making it difficult to reach family and loved ones. Keep these contact cards in easily accessible locations such as in children's bags, lunch boxes, coats, or with school or child care staff.
