Plans for Infants & Children
If babies or children are part of your immediate or extended family, your Ready Kits and Family Emergency Plan should plan for their care. Pack materials and food they will need, and don’t forget to include items that will help comfort them. A weather or emergency situation can be very scary for young children.
For your Ready Kits, pack:
infant/child fever reducer, rash ointment, any necessary medications
stuffed animal, doll, pacifier, blanket
baby wipes, diapers, nursing pads
books, puzzles, games
