Emergencies and disasters are serious business. Every year people suffer the impacts. From loss of life, business and finances to emotional trauma major emergencies and disasters can cause grief. In no way would we ever make light of their pain and suffering.
However, we don’t want you to be scared – we want you to be prepared. Humor can be a great way to talk to your family about emergency preparedness without frightening them, making a game of developing your 72 hour kit can help get children involved, and taking time to laugh can support a positive frame of mind.
The tabs at the top of this page explore the lighter side of emergency preparedness. Through humorous videos, child friendly websites and games, and links to other emergency preparedness sites we hope that you learn some, laugh some, and be inspired to get more prepared for the disaster we hope never happens and the little emergencies that happen every day.
