Emergency Preparedness Focus In Illinois
(Peoria, IL) -- Emergency management agencies in Illinois are encouraging families to be prepared for multiple kinds of emergencies. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is recommending parents know their child's school or daycare emergency plan and continually review it with their children. They also say parents should make sure schools have their children's up-do-date contact information. Another bit of advice the IEMA has is to form a back-up emergency plan with a relative.
