FEMA Launches the New Ready Kids Webpages

FEMA Launches the New Ready Kids Webpages

This week, FEMA’s Ready Campaign relaunched newly updated Ready.gov/kids, or Ready Kids, webpages. The relaunch is part of week three of National Preparedness Month, which focuses on the importance of including young people in disaster preparedness.

Ready Kids is the youth preparedness platform for the Ready Campaign. The updated website is a one-stop shop with interactive search features, tools and resources to help engage kids and young people on emergency and disaster preparedness. It also includes games and activities for kids to teach them about being prepared for disasters.

Parents, caregivers and educators are encouraged to go to Ready.gov/kids for tools to create a family communications plan, a checklist to build an emergency preparedness kit, and resources to talk with children and teens about disasters that may occur where you live.

Ready.gov/kids also has resources to support the integration and implementation of children’s disaster-related needs into preparedness, planning, response and recovery efforts. State, local, territorial and tribal governments and other stakeholders responsible for the temporary care of children can find tools for developing emergency operations plans, trainings, guidance, policies and more on the updated Ready Kids website. 

Learn more about preparing for disasters and emergencies at Ready.gov.
