Children's 72 Hour Backpack
Your children’s safety is your #1 priority, but if you had to evacuate would you have what you needed to keep them safe?
A hurricane, forest fire, earthquake or any number of other disasters could leave you and your family displaced and in need of basic necessities. Food, water, first aid may be enough for adults but children can be scared by unfamiliar surroundings and things they don’t understand. They need to have their emotional needs met as well as their physical needs.
If you have a short time to flee from an impending disaster and need to go quickly you will not have time to gather up your child’s favorite toys and ensure you have food, water, first aid or hygiene items. With a complete emergency backpack designed to meet the needs of small children, you can be confident you can provide the necessary support and safety your child will need. Just grab and go, knowing you took a second to plan ahead.

Plan Ahead With Your Kids
How can I be sure that my emergency backpack will be useful?
Providing the right tools like a safety backpack is only the first step. Children and caregivers need to be taught how to use them as well. It is important to make sure that the child and caregiver both know what is in the backpack and how and when to use it. As terrifying as it is to think about, parents cannot keep their children from feeling fear during a scary situation. The only thing that they can do is be proactive and educate the child on what might happen during an emergency and what they should do. Go through each item in the safety backpack, identify it and show the child how to use it.
Children need help from capable adults in any emergency situation. In a true emergency situation where help is delayed a simple emergency kit can provide peace of mind.
Emergency backpacks will keep your kids safe!
From healthy boundaries to band-aids for bumps and bruises, keeping little ones safe is second nature to parents. At home it is pretty simple: stock the first aid kit, eliminate obvious hazards, and teach them about dangers and safe practices. Protecting them becomes more difficult as they engage in the world around them and attend school, daycare, camps or church activities.
Despite the best efforts of the most attentive parents, no one can control when and where an emergency occurs. Children have additional needs during an emergency situation, beyond that of most teens or adults. Schools, churches and other facilities that keep children will have some planning and preparation for emergency events in place. Unfortunately, emergency situations are unpredictable and the best chance that your little one has is something that you can provide them - an emergency backpack kit.
