Get Children Involved in Disaster Planning: It Helps Calm Their Fears   [open pdf - 18KB]

"When family life is disrupted by a natural disaster, children often feel vulnerable or just plain scared. Well- thought out plans that involve them in pre-disaster and post-disaster activities can help calm their fears. The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) web site, 'FEMA for KIDS,' is designed for children; it has fun quizzes and games. At the same time, the site helps families prepare for a disaster."
