Safety education: family disaster plan part 4 (final)
Throughout the month of January we have been creating our family disaster plan. We've talked about possible disasters that could occur in our area, gathered important information, and discussed possible solutions to potential emergencies.
By making ourselves more aware, we have lessened our confusion factor!
Today we are going to review.
The parent/teacher, looking back over the last three lessons, should ask questions to make sure your family remembers meeting places, phone numbers and safety rules discussed.
Implement a schedule to test smoke detectors monthly and change the batteries two times each year,
Check manufacturer's instructions to understand how to test and charge your fire extinguishers,
Develop a way to keep track of your stored food & water to replace it every six months.
Discuss & answer any other concerns your family might have regarding possible disasters and evacuation procedures.

In addition to preparing your own family, please prayerfully consider helping other families during times of disaster. After learning how the local chapter of the American Red Cross & other disaster relief agencies quickly respond to individual disasters like house fires, the kids may want to have a fund drive to collect needed items to donate. Community outreach is always encouraged!
Thanks so much for joining our safety class.
See you next time.
