Have you wondered what to get a child or friend for the perfect holiday gift? Some holiday gifts break or are used right away or even worse are exchanged for something else. If you don’t want to spend hours in a store right before the holidays and want to give a gift that will help your friend or a child be safer and better prepared for a wildfire disaster, create your own emergency go kit with directions provided by NFPA’s TakeAction initiative.
The tip sheet gives guidance on a variety of must have items that anyone could put in a backpack and then decorate. These simple and useful gifts can not only provide a sense of security but also be used as an interactive learning experience for a parent or guardian and a child to explain preparedness planning in a safe environment helping children and youth understand what can happen if before there is a wildfire and make family safety plans before an event occurs.
