HEALTH WELLNESS sponsored by HEALTHYHABITS Preparing Children for Emergencies Emergencies can happen when you least expect them It is important for families to be ready for emergencies and just as important for children to learn how to act Children can and should be taught emergency preparedness based on their age Education can begin as early as kindergarten As the child ages the education should change to fit their learning abilities When teaching emergency preparedness include everyone who lives in the household and these principles 1 Practice the plan Ensure everyone knows their role This will help identify areas that may confuse your child 2 Take it slow Only teach one subject at a time and make sure your child is ready before moving on to a new subject You might start with how to be safe in a thunderstorm Once the child shows understanding move on to the next subject 3 Be realistic Focus on emergency situations that are likely to happen in your area For instance Idaho doesn t have hurricanes so there is no need to teach how to act in a hurricane unless you visit areas at risk Make it fun Teaching children about being ready for an emergency should never be based on fear Using games is a fantastic way to teach young children about emergency response As a child ages a parent or caregiver can progress to a more serious education plan 4 Utilize resources The best way to prepare for an emergency is to have the tools you need before the emergency happens Use reliable resources for family emergency planning which includes making a home emergency kit having a contact list and ensuring you have easy access to important documents Reliable resources for emergency planning Plan Ahead for Disasters Ready gov Ready Kids Ready gov Youth and Emergency Planning FEMA gov How Families Can Prepare for Emergencies RedCross org familyemergencykitchecklist pdf cdc gov Trish Health St Luke s Accreditation Specialist Sponsored by 14 w w w s o u t h e r n i d a h o k i d s c o m

DID YOU KNOW Will Work for Potatoes After farmers harvest their fields there are usually crops or produce that are left behind whether it is due to size too small to be sold or they were just missed or left behind by the harvester In Idaho we are lucky to have so many potato fields surrounding us Many farmers are more than willing to share some of their harvest by allowing you to glean their field Gleaning means picking up the dropped or fallen crops or produce left in the field after the farmer has taken all that they planned to Keep in mind that you need permission to do this from the farmers in advance Trespassing on any land without consent is illegal Miller Research a Rupert based company is hosting its annual Potato Day on Saturday September 23rd starting at 8 00 AM The community is invited to come glean any potatoes left in the field This is a great opportunity for kids and their families to learn Free Potato Day at Miller Research Saturday September 23 8 00 AM 1 00 PM 250 N 400 E Rupert ID more about the farming industry and get their hands dirty by gleaning their own potatoes that they can take home free of charge Bring some work gloves and boxes for the potatoes They encourage donations of non perishable items which will be donated to the Open Hearts Food Pantry Dig down to your Idaho roots literally and come enjoy a day with your family Working for free potatoes will just be an added bonus to a fun day in the dirt IDAHO ALL STARS COMPETITIVE CHEER Idaho All Stars NON COMPETITIVE 1 2 Page CHEER Horizontal TUMBLING CLASSES MENTION THIS AD AND GET A DISCOUNT FOR MORE INFO CALL OR TEXT 208 421 5360 OR 208 539 0818 WWW IDAHOALLSTARCHEER COM 19 S e p t e m b e r 2 0 2 3
