Have a youth interested in Natural events? Or curious how their families can be better prepared in an emergency? Does your child know how to access 9-1-1 in case of an emergency?  Then this three-day virtual Emergency Preparedness Camp is for them.


Participants will learn what to do before, during, and after an emergency. Educators from the Department of Emergency Management will provide fun activities to teach problem solving, creativity, and communication skills that will help youths respond to unexpected situations. There will also be fun science experiments shown that participants can also do at home along with videos, apps, and special guests that will make the material fun and easy to understand.
