This website offers information and ideas about preparing families for disasters and emergency situations. Checklists for supplies are provided, along with a form for filling in emergency contact numbers and information that each family member can carry. Games make identifying supplies for emergency kits and important information fun.

"It has been a real boost to have a blog that parents and students can go to and see not only the finished product, but the planning and putting everything together that the kids do. My eCoach has helped me so much by providing a space to show the process AND to share resources. (I can't keep track of my bookmarks, so if it's something I think is really good, I put it in 'Resources' on the team page. Now I can find it!) Take a bow!"
