Preparing Children for an Emergency
Disasters may strike quickly and without warning. These events can be frightening for adults, but they are traumatic for children if they don't know what to do. During a disaster, a family may have to leave home and daily routine. Children may be confused or frightened. As an adult, to cope with the disaster in a way that will help children avoid developing a permanent sense of loss, it is important to give children guidance that will help reduce their fears. Children are also very resilient and able to adapt to new and changing situations.
