The American Red Cross wants to make sure students stay safe during this upcoming academic year. They recommend kids know the following:
•Home phone number
•How to get in touch with their parents
•How to dial 911
Parents and students should know what the emergency plan is at the school the young person attends in case a disaster or unforeseen event occurs. In addition, The Red Cross recommends their first aid class
where participants learn how to handle the most common first aid emergencies.
