FEMA for Kids is presented by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Go to http://www.fema.gov/ and click on Kids. Meet Herman the spokescrab and tag along on his search for a disaster-proof shell. You’ll also meet Julia and Robbie, the Disaster Twins. Wherever these two go, trouble is sure to follow. Watch brother and sister get into – and out of – all sorts of close calls, learning along the way how to be better prepared, or how to avoid danger altogether.
The Web site shows disasters come in many shapes and sizes. Some are predictable — like a hurricane. Some, like a tornado, can surprise us. Leaning about the different kinds of disasters will help us all be better prepared. Learn the best way to keep safe, and keep your family and pets safe, as you do what you like to do best – have fun!
