Sussex Resilience Forum recognises the significant role education can play in improving the resilience of the whole community. Our Community Risk Brochure has been delivered to every school in Sussex.
Other major partners already have a great input into increasing a child's awareness of risks that exist and we will work with them to broaden their horizons. We will undertake to populate this website with suitable fun material.
Kids activity survival kit
You may have to leave your house during a disaster and may sleep somewhere else for a while. It's smart to put together your own kid's activity survival kit so you will have things to do and share with other kids.
These can all be stored in a backpack or school bag. Just make sure you can carry it easily. Some items for your activity survival kit could be:
• A few of your favourite books
• Crayons, pencils or marking pens and plenty of paper
• Scissors and glue
• Two favourite toys such as a doll or action figure
• One or two board games
• A deck of cards
• A puzzle (one with lots of pieces is good - they take a long time to do!)
• Small people figures and play vehicles that you can use to play out what is happening during your disaster such as ambulance, fire truck, helicopter, dump truck, police car, small boats.
• Favourite stuffed animal or puppet
• Favourite blanket or pillow
• Pictures of the family and pet
• A 'keep safe' box with a few treasures that make you feel special.
