Helping Kids Get Ready
Sesame Street has developed two new mobile apps as well as online resources aimed at making sure families have an interactive and kid-friendly resource for emergency preparedness.
The Let’s Get Ready app teaches children what information they need to know in case of an emergency, such as their address, their parent’s names and what items to put in an emergency kit. The other app, Here for Each Other, is geared towards teaching parents how to talk to their children about emergency situations help them cope with the aftermath of a disaster.
The apps and other resources are available for free in both English and Spanish.
