Thursday, July 14, 2011 OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr. Laura Sivadge, Principal and Rodney Martinez, Dean of Students Planning for the Worst, but Hoping for the Best You never know if your home will ever be threat- ened by fire, weather, or other disasters. And who knows if you'll ever get separated from your children in a crowd? To be prepared, it's vital that you and your chil- dren know exactly what to do in emergency situations and have the plans in place to react quickly and calmly if something serious happens. Play it by the numbers. Even preschoolers can learn to dial 911-although it's essential that children know to only dial it in cases of emergency Children also need to have access to home, cell and work numbers for par- ents, caregivers and trusted neighbors. Post a list in your kitchen where they can see it. Give copies to their teach- ers and school, childcare providers and other emergency contacts. Plan it out. Create and rehears e your family's escape plan to be used in case of a fire or other home emer- gency. Make a game of practicing exactly what to do, timing your children to see who follows the plan and gets out safely fastest. Be sure to include a econdary plan in case the first exit is blocked or unsafe. Have the right supplies. One of the best "be prepared" lists is available through the U.S. Department of Home- land Security's website: In addition to checklists for adults, the site includes terrific, nonthreat- ening games for children to play to learn what to do in cases of emergenc) like an emergency supply kit scav- enger hunt. Your local Red Cross and fire departments also can be great emergency-planning resources. Check your equipment. Make sure your home's smoke detectors are always in working order and that your fire extinguishers have not passed their expiration date and are easily accessible. Get drop-down window ladders if your apartment or bedrooms are not on the first floor. Who to trust? Children can get separated from their families at any time-at a big public event, in a crowded store, or on a family outing. Teach them to stay where they are and not go wandering off to try to find you. Little ones should be taught to just have a seat on the ground and start calling out, as loud as they can, "Mommy" or "Daddy'-or whatever they call you. If they are separated from you for a long period of time, tell them they should inform a safe adult-a mother with children, a police of- ricer, or a security guard-that they are lost. A snapshot could be a lifesaver. Keep a current pic- ture of each of you]" children with you at all times. Not only will the photos bring a smile to your face, they could be essential to helping locate your child quickly if you get separated. Memorize the essentials. Even young preschoolers can learn their first andlast names and kindergartenets should have. memorized both their address and their parents' full names before their first day of school. Be aware of the school's plans. Every school should have an emergency plan in place. Ask to see a copy. Make sure that they rehearse emergency response situafiorks with students-from rite drills to tornado or hurricane plans. Talk it out. Some parents don't want to talk about the possibility of an emergency because they're afraid of alarming their children. But discussing it ahead of time, when it's just a '%7hat if" situation, not only will help them know what to do, it will help them cope with the stress if something does happen. Do let them know that, in some situations, their parents will not be able to be with them right away, but by following your family disaster plan and going to a trusted adult, they wilt be safe.
