Teach Youth about Disaster Preparedness
Save lives and prevent injury by providing leadership and/or support to Disaster Cycle Services team members through The Pillowcase Project and Prepare with Pedro programs.
The Pillowcase Project and Pedro the Penguin are national youth preparedness program offered by Red Cross regions across the country. The presentation provides emergency preparedness education to youth in K-2 (ages 4-7) for Pedro and grades 3-5 (ages 8-11) for Pillowcase -- in school classrooms and other settings.
Numerous tools have been developed for this program including a standardized curriculum, workbook, quizzes and activities which have been carefully constructed with the help of curriculum and hazard experts. Many tools for presenters have been developed to foster consistency and fidelity to the program goals and objectives. The highly interactive presentation addresses home fire safety, a local natural hazard, psycho-social coping skills and household preparedness steps like making a plan and a kit.
