My Day in Far Rockaway

Hi friends,

Today is the official start of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season!

To kick things off, yesterday my friend Omar and I visited the fifth grade students at the Goldie Maple Academy in Far Rockaway.

We talked about how to be safe in a hurricane, where to go if we have to evacuate, and what items we should have at home in case of an emergency.

The students and I had fun trying on ponchos and an emergency mylar blanket!

 

After, we watched these videos which the P.A.L. Summer Youth program held at the Goldie Maple Academy created a few years ago:

Ready, Set, Prepare

Emergency Experts

Peace & preparedness,

Ready Girl
