Ready Kids

Hey kids, if there’s ever an unexpected emergency or disaster in Clayton County, you can help! It’s important for your family to have a plan and be prepared. The tips below will help you learn what you can do to help the adults in charge during an emergency.

  • Help your parents, grandparents or guardians put together a Ready kit.
  • Pack books and board games in your Ready kit so you'll have activities to keep you busy.

  • Decide who each family member will call if you are separated during an emergency.
  • It might be easier to reach a relative who's out of town. Everyone in the family can contact an aunt, uncle or grandparent to let them know you're okay.
  • You should keep a copy of your family's contact numbers and meeting places taped to the inside of your binder, homework notebook, or book bag.

  • Choose an easy-to-find location near your home, and then practice getting there from different locations around your neighborhood.
  • Also, choose an easy-to-find location outside of your neighborhood in case you can't get home.


  • Make a Ready kit for your pet, too!
  • Remind Mom and Dad to make a plan for what you'll do with your pets if you can't take them with you. Remember, you may not be able to take them to a shelter.

Always remember: If an unexpected emergency does happen, stay calm and listen to directions from adults around you, like your teachers or parents.
