Twitter Chat: Emergency Preparedness for Little Ones

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST

Everyone needs an emergency plan.  But if you are the parent or caregiver of a little one, then your plan needs a few extra steps.

Join us for a twitter chat on September 17 from 1:00-2:00 PM EDT and learn about ways that you can help keep kids from birth to 5 years old healthy before, during and after an emergency.  We plan to discuss a wide range of topics, including:

  • ways that parents and caregivers can prepare for the needs of young children before, during and after disaster strikes;
  • recognizing the ways that your child’s changing needs impact your family’s preparedness plan 
  • planning with all of the people who take care of your little one, like daycare providers, babysitters, grandparents and other caregivers;
  • recognizing stress and addressing children’s mental health needs; 
  • considerations for children with special needs; and more. 

The chat will be hosted by @PHEgov and will include experts from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Follow the chat by using #Prep4Kids in all of your tweets.
