Emergency Preparedness Classroom Kits

Help me give my students clean water, warmth, and care in an emergency situation.

My Students

We have a diverse student body from both rural and populated areas. Our students are creative, resilient, and excited to learn. Many of our students come to school without the background knowledge and experiences that their peers in larger cities have. We try to provide access to the larger world and encourage our students to pursue opportunities their parents and families may never have had the chance to pursue.

Our students have shown great courage and flexibility after experiencing a magnitude 7 earthquake.

Students were out of school for 6 days and continue to experience aftershocks during the school day. We would like to reassure them that their school is a safe place to be by providing the necessary supplies for continued safety.

My Project

The earthquake in November caused extensive damage to several schools in the area. While we were fortunate to have made it through the earthquake with no injuries, this was a wake-up call to our school to ensure that we have what we need to keep students safe and cared for in any circumstance.

The items selected for this project deal directly with the health and well-being of our students in an emergency situation.

If emergency response personnel are detained or too far away, we will have what we need to provide safe drinking water, conserve heat, and care for injuries.
