Pillowcase Project: Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Training for Kids
Thursday, March 9, 2023
Our local Red Cross has partnered with the library to offer FREE youth disaster preparedness presentations. This program teaches students to identify the best ways to stay safe during emergencies and the best ways to prevent and stay safe during a home fire. There will also be discussion on the role science plays in emergency preparedness. Students will be taught coping skills to help manage stress during emergencies and in everyday situations, and they will gain confidence in their abilities to be prepared for emergencies through hands-on activities. Upon completion, they will be encouraged to use their knowledge to act as advocates for emergency preparedness in their homes and communities.
Pillowcase Project is for students in grades 3-5 (ages 8–11). Preregistration is required. Call 355-1489 or stop by the library to register.
