FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Helping Children Prepare for Disaster   [open pdf - 45KB]

Alternate Title: Helping Children Prepare for Disasters

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "Children are among the most vulnerable disaster victims, so giving them safety guidelines before a disaster strikes is critical. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has an excellent disaster-specific program just for kids called FEMA for Kids. The program is designed to help children be better prepared in the event of future disasters." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
