The Pillowcase Project is a preparedness education program for grades 3-5 that teaches students about personal and family preparedness and safety skills, local hazards, and basic coping skills. Red Cross volunteers lead students through a “Learn, Practice, Share” framework to engage them in disaster preparedness and survival skills.
Prepare with Pedro provides an introduction for students in grades k-2 to the concept of emergency preparedness in a fun and educational way. Using storytelling, students will understand what it means to prepare, perform protective actions based on the emergency, learn and practice a coping skill, and being able to share what they learned with household members.
The presentation provides residents with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover to pre-disaster conditions as quickly as possible. Such topics include how to create a family evacuation plan, assemble emergency supply kits, steps to take care of your family and community and more.
