The American Red Cross will provide a free program to help children be prepared, not scared, when disasters happen. 

The Pillowcase Project is a disaster preparedness program for 2nd - 6th grade participants that teaches them:

  • How they and their households can best prevent, prepare for and escape from a home fire
  • What causes natural hazards like earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes
  • How they and their households can prepare for and stay safe when a natural hazard becomes an emergency
  • Practical skills to help cope with and stay calm during emergencies and other stressful situations
  • What tools and practices they and their households can use to be prepared for all types of emergency situations

Participants will receive the My Preparedness Workbook and a sturdy pillowcase to hold their own emergency supplies kit.
