FEMA for Parents

Parents: Don’t forget to cover your Disaster Plans with all caregivers so in your absence, they can properly care for your children and themselves. Also, if you children are home alone, make sure they are well versed in what to do in case of an emergency and your inability to reach them before an event occurs.
