As parents, our children’s safety is our first priority. It’s probably not a topic that any parent looks forward to discussing with their children, but coming together and making a catastrophe or emergency plan is invaluable. With everything going on in the world today, from natural disasters to terror threats, it’s a serious topic to think about. Safety must always come first.

Some simple items to discuss with your kids include:

-Picking a specific location as a meeting place

-Making sure that your kids know appropriate emergency contacts

-Teaching your kids their/your phone number, address and appropriate uses for 911.
