When emergencies strike our communities, many children are left with feelings of uncertainty and questions about the safety of themselves and their loved ones. The onset of COVID-19 introduced all families to a crisis that affects communities both medically and emotionally. At such a time, familiarizing children with emergency preparedness is critical. Not only can crisis education help kids understand an emergency and identify the community figures who will help them, but it can empower them to react better and feel safer during times of crisis. Research shows that introducing children to community helpers in a safe and fun environment can improve their outcomes during an emergency.
