HOW TO USE MEET THE HELPERS:Meet The Helpers is designed for use in homes, classrooms and for public media stations around the country.
Together, we can help children learn about important community helpers in a calm and fun environment, so when an emergency strikes, children will understand who to look for and how to help.
- Meet The Helpers: Use this section to introduce children to helpers in our community and learn more about their careers.
- Make A Plan: Download, print and complete these resources to practice emergency preparedness in your home or classroom.
- Emergencies: Use this section if a community crisis has occurred in your area to reassure children that adults are working to keep them safe.
FOR FAMILIES: Use the videos and resources here to introduce children to helpers and practice your family's emergency preparedness.
FOR TEACHERS: Introduce helpers to children and let them learn about different career options. Log in to PBS LearningMedia for more resources for your classroom.
FOR PBS STATIONS: Many of these videos are produced to fill break time between programs during the PBS KIDS block and on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel.
In a crisis, the emergency interstitials can be used to respond to a recent tragedy and ease children's anxiety. Contact WUCF for a full station toolkit.
