Good morning all,
This article shows it's starting. It's about Japan and, of course, we have some starts here also, but the theme is less geography and about teaching disaster preparedness as part of the required knowledge-base needed for life.
Perhaps these elementary school kids in Japan don't know that colonial Virginia got its start in 1607 but they'll be around to look it up.
The kids are taught the positive view; how to be safe rather than the "Don't do this or that".
Much good info and ideas in this article, conceding that the referenced ema boards won't be used here.
To start this discussion, besides having posted the article, I must mention that the "community outreach" programs just don't work. If some adults have to be told to stockpile a few jugs of water,.....it's too late to mention fraud prevention during recovery repairs, get a whistle and et cetra.
Plus, there's a savings on printing and litter clean-up from the discarded pamphlets on the parking lot site.
