FYI: Plan for disasters :

September 4, 2017

This September, the National Preparedness Month theme is “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead, You Can.”

Find out how to take action in your office and help families be ready for emergencies and disasters at www.aap.org/disasters/preparednessmonth. Among steps highlighted are AAP calls to action, including details about signing up for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Health Advisory Network urgent public health message system. You’ll also find influenza prevention and control measures and personal preparedness planning details.

Next, check out the CDC website for the Ready Wrigley activity book series, http://bit.ly/2ur2vic, for children 2-8 years old. Each book is AAP-reviewed and endorsed, including the new activity book that helps children prepare for influenza season. Print copies to share with families and children.
