School is an extension of our children’s home environment.
We expect it to be safe, but natural disasters and weather events can reach our kids even when they are at school. An earthquake, tornado or other event can make it difficult for the teacher to care for them until help arrives.
A classroom emergency kit can be a big help in such times of need.
The better kits will contain not only first aid items, but also means of purifying and storing water, work gloves, a pry bar for unsticking stuck doors & windows, a light source, radio, and of course: toilet paper.
Hopefully your child will never experience an emergency situation at school, but if one happens, the teacher will be better prepared to deal with it if one of these classroom emergency kits is handy.
