Youth Preparedness Classes

The Huntley Police Department is excited to partner with the Kane County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Management to host classes in Emergency and Disaster Preparedness geared towards children. These classes will be taught by experienced members of the Kane County Emergency Management Team.
 
As adults, we want children to feel safe and not worried about potential emergencies, but we all know that disasters can happen, often without warnings, and we want children to know what steps to take to be able to stay safe during and after an event.

This class is not intended to scare kids. Rather, it will be age appropriate, fun and educational to build confidence and empower them to be prepared. Prepared kids can become the resourceful adults of the future.

Class Topics
Emergency & Disaster Preparedness
Students will learn about the difference between an emergency, a disaster and a hazard as well as what types of emergencies to be prepared for, protective actions to take, family emergency communications plans, disaster supply kits, Go Bags and what to do during severe weather.

First Aid
A First Aid/CPR instructor will teach age appropriate basic first aid, including responsive vs. unresponsive, phoning for help, when to call 911, personal protective equipment, the importance of hand washing, finding the problem, stopping bleeding and choking.

Each class will end with the kids receiving a Go Bag .

These classes are free but preregistration is required.  Seating is limited, so be sure to reserve a space for your child today!
