Fire Safe Marin offers resources to help kids and their families prepare for emergencies. A series of short and engaging videos help children understand the threats posed by wildfires, floods, earthquakes, and power outages. Questions and activities between each video test comprehension and encourage conversation and actions to keep safe. Homework assignments invite the whole family to take part in making a plan to stay safe.
These resources were created with Google Pear Deck and can be accessed through the links below. In schools, teachers show the videos to the class and students work independently through the associated activities. A Teacher’s Guide is included for background information to answer students’ questions and facilitate discussion. The programs are offered in English and Spanish. Materials for schools are included in the “Resources” below.
