Emergency Preparedness Survivor
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS SURVIVOR
The Emergency Preparedness (EP) Survivor Challenge was created to encourage youth to prepare themselves and their families prior to an emergency and to teach students practical survival skills in the event that they are faced with an emergency situation. For the EP Survivor Challenge, students participate in a mock emergency situation, such as a blackout, for a period of 15-18 hours. To “survive” the overnight period, students will have to rely on the contents of their emergency survival kit, which is personalized based on each participant’s needs. Throughout the evening, students participate in a variety of emergency preparedness activities and exercises.
