Training:Know your home

Get Trained at Home
Teach children how to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. Review emergency action steps with all family members:
• Check the scene and the victim
• Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number posted by the telephone
• Care for the victim
Practice, practice, practice. If you children are unsure, practice some more, if they are scared let them know it is ok to be scared, but that practicing will help them over come their fear.
Help your children learn more about emergencies. Download this preparedness coloring book or visit

Additional information: In the event of a disaster, emergency medical response may be delayed because of the remoteness of your home or by adverse conditions, such as roads blocked by floodwater or debris. While precious minutes slip by, your emergency training could mean the difference between life and death. Properly administered first aid or CPR can help stabilize an injured or ailing family member until help arrives. Make sure at least one family member is trained in first aid and CPR and how to use an automated external defibrillator. It could save a life. For more information on CPR/AED training, contact your local Red Cross chapter or visit

What’s in YOUR kit? Part 3

Include at least one complete change of clothing and footwear per person in your emergency supply kit. We suggest long pants and long sleeves for additional protection after a disaster. If you are going to be working outside in the water bring several changes of socks, and possibly shoes, to give your feet a chance to dry out.

Clothing and Bedding
(Essential Items are Marked with an Asterisk *)
• Sturdy shoes or work boots*
• Rain gear*
• Blankets or sleeping bags*
• Hat and gloves
• Thermal underwear
• Sunglasses
