FEMA Ready Kids
Your family and teachers will get very busy with preparations whenever a hurricane threatens a community. There’s plenty kids can do to help their family and friends prepare.  Create a plan that will help you be ready for many different kinds of unexpected situations and get your kids involved in the preparation!

Kids Health
Many kids won’t be directly affected by hurricanes, but it’s normal to have questions or worries.  Use this website as a guide to talk to your kids about their feelings, being creative in expressing their feelings, ways they can help, etc.
