Establishing Teen Community Emergency Response Teams (Teen CERTs), which “can assist others following an event when professional responders are not immediately available on scene. Teen CERT training applies the CERT model to high school students and campuses.”

Just one of the 'Fun' things kids can do.


The Children’s Working Group will focus on the following areas, according to Fugate:

• Child-specific guidance for evacuation, sheltering, and relocation;
• Tracking and reunification of families;
• Coordinated case management support;
• Enhanced preparedness for child care centers and schools as well as for children in child welfare and juvenile justice systems;
• Enhanced national planning, including incorporation of children into national planning scenarios and exercises;
• Incorporation of children’s needs into grant guidance;
• Improved recovery coordination across the Federal government and with State, tribal and local partners in support of children’s education, health and housing;
• Consideration as to how the Federal family can help ensure child care centers are able to rebuild and restore services more quickly following a disaster; and
• Increased public awareness efforts to educate families and protect children during disasters.

On the surface it sure sounds fuzzy and warm.

Does this make you wonder at all? It sure looks like fun, don't it?

This keeps popping out at me...

the gov't is looking out for kids
the gov't is having older kids looking out for other kids

where are the parents in all of this? obviously they won't be with the kids, or there'd be no 'reunification'.

in the case of an emergency, are children going to be relocated and sheltered at a different location than their parents?

Yeah. Makes me wonder, for sure.

Here's is a definition off of one of their pages.


Terrorism is the use of threat or violence to scare governments into changing their policies. A terrorist can be an individual or a member of an organization. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, are examples of acts of terrorism.

(they didn't really LIE, they just didn't say who the 'terrorists' were.)

Wow! They have tons of these things for kids.

Perhaps this all innocuous. Some of the info is about having emergency kits, communication plans and who knows.
