Resource for Earthquake and Hurricane Preparedness for Educators

As educators, we are constantly looking for resources to help those in our community. With the threat of an impending hurricane upon the east coast and those not familiar with earthquake preparedness, I wanted to share some resources from my favorite site on preparedness for disasters, Ready.gov

Ready.gov’s earthquake site includes what to do before, during and after an earthquake. Visit the page HERE

Another page that I recommend on the Ready.gov site is their hurricane page. The site has all the information you could possibly need or want. To go to their hurricane page, click HERE

In addition, the site also has a useful page for children. You can find it HERE.

In addition, the site has information for all sorts of disasters. The site will make a great resource for your educator tool box. 

The fire safety dogs and I are on the East Coast in Virginia preparing to share fire safety the next few days. We have practiced our earthquake drills and are preparing for the hurricane, should it arrive while we are here. We hope that all of our fire service friends out there stay safe. 

Here's a link to Hurricane Irene widgets for your blog and/or webpage: http://www.noaawatch.gov/widgets/

 

 

The picture is of our new friend, Ecco. As many of you may know, the fire safety dogs and I are big bloggers and big on social media. We found this picture of Ecco this morning on his Facebook page.

Speaking of the fire safety dogs, here are their Facebook pages:

Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog

Siren the Fire Safety Dog

Tango the Fire Safety Dog

Until next time, stay safe!
