Sesame Street Takes On Emergency Preparedness

Sesame Street is making a real impact these days with viral videos and PSAs that communicate simple, but very important messages to young and old alike. Remember last year when Elmo taught us how to stay healthy by sneezing into our elbow?

Now, Grover and Rosita star in a PSA teaching us all about the importance of creating an emergency preparedness kit.  And, Sesame Street has an entire section of their web site dedicated to emergency preparedness.   Take some time to visit the site with your child, watch the videos and talk through the information.  In the event of an emergency, you’ll be thankful you did.
