Is Your Child’s School Prepared? 

If you have children or grandchildren, you’ll want to check with the school and see what preparations have been made in the event of a serious earthquake. Schools should expect that some parents may not physically be able to pick their child up after a quake (think impassable roads). They are prepared with food, water, first aid, and sanitary necessities, knowing that some of the kids may well need to spend the night at school. 

There should also be a plan of action which involves sharing information with the parents. 

Here’s to making your home secure and your family safe.
