Prepared, Not ScaredPrepared, Not Scared was developed as a community resource to assist children and families with understanding emotions associated with hurricanes. As anxieties and expectations with upcoming hurricane seasons increase, an overwhelming need has developed from parents and community members to create a resource for children and parents to do together and discuss these feelings further. This resource provides interactive activities for children to complete with parents to help prepare them for these traumatic experiences. For more information, please call 1-800-798-1575.
