Nellie Stokes Elementary Disaster Preparedness Presentation
Mr. Smi and Mr. Strouse focused their presentation on Earthquake Preparedness. Students participated in a thirty second FEMA approved Americas Prepare-A-Thon exercise, titled “Drop, Cover and Hold”. Mr. McLee’s presentation covered All Hazards, in which he introduced and showed our Disaster Preparedness DVD which covers: “Make an Emergency Plan, Make an Emergency Kit, Evacuation and Shelter in Place Procedures.” He gave the students, teachers and parents a 2G Lanyard/Travel Drive Combo, which was preloaded with a “Family Disaster Plan.” Participants were also given a “It’s a Disaster Booklet”, and a “Disaster Preparedness Pocket Guide” to take home and complete for their Family Disaster Plan. A copy of the DVD and a Citizen Corps Disaster Preparedness Kit was left for the school.
