Preparedness Challenge: October Week 3

Your third preparedness challenge for October, is to get a winter coat for everyone in your family if they need it. Kids grow so quickly. A coat is essential for regular cold or wet weather as well as disasters. Consider your climate and past weather disasters such as windstorms, snowstorms, rain, hurricanes, or fires. Imagine if you had to be outside of your house in the cold for hours or days. Everyone needs a good coat. You’ve got this!

Printable Preparedness Challenge: October Week 3


• Find a hooded coat with drawstrings that wrap around your face.

• A good coat doesn’t have to be expensive, but it should keep you warm.

• If you can’t afford a new coat, find a used one at a second-hand store.

• Keep your coat in an easy to grab location in case you need to evacuate.

• Just when you think you’ve found your child the best coat ever, they lose it. At our elementary school, there is a massive pile of lost and found. So maybe get your child two. 🙂

• If you have an extra coat, donate it to someone in need.

I tried to make it simple for you this week. If you don’t need a new coat, then work on a past preparedness challenge. Keep up the good work!
