My Preparedness Story

Preparing for disasters and emergencies is hard work – and many students are up to the challenge.  We’ve seen students help their communities prepare for disasters and emergencies by volunteering at health centers or with their local Medical Reserve Corps Unit, learning first aid and CPR, developing an emergency plan, preparing an emergency kit, and much more.
Many of those students told their stories as part of the My Preparedness Story:  Staying Healthy and Resilient video challenge.  Check out the winning videos below!
