Teaching Points:

  • Top 10 potential emergencies for the Region of Waterloo
  • Being Emergency Prepared
  • Go-Kits
  • Shelter-in-place Kits

Following classroom instruction, students are divided into two groups for “hands on application” to create kits.  Each group is given “special considerations” for their specific family such as having a dog, a baby or a medically dependent adult.

Group One

  • Assembles a Go Kit
  • Family leaves home for 72 hours

Group Two

  • Assembles a Shelter-in-Place Kit

Students are then partnered up, broken into teams and participate in an interactive trivia game to test their knowledge.
