Resource Highlights: Hurricane Season

NOAA predicts this year’s hurricane season will be above-normal with a range of fourteen to twenty-one named storms, with six to ten that could become hurricanes. “Early preparation and understanding your risk is key to being hurricane resilient and climate-ready,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo. Hurricane season extends from June first to November thirty.

Please feel free to download and distribute this complimentary two-page handout. The first side offers an "after the storm" interactive activity. The second page offers a "before, during, and after" checklist, written for the child and his/her family. You can also use this activity book for your safety efforts. If you ever need a specific language, please let us know in this quick survey.


Upcoming Events: National Injury Prevention Day


Injuries and violence are the leading causes of death and disability for people from age one to age forty-four.On November eighteenth, the Injury Free Coalition for Kids and their partner organizations will join forces to push for change. This effort will mark the country's third "National Injury Prevention Day," a day to raise awareness and empower communities to stop preventable injuries. 




Last year, organizations and cities held events to raise awareness to prevent specific injuries including bike safety, child passenger safety, firearm and home safety and sleep safety. As the sun went down, many hospitals, landmarks, businesses, monuments, neighborhoods and government offices were “shining a green light” to mark the occasion. 


How can you get involved? Submit information about your plans to the NIPD webpage or email [email protected]. Join this national effort and shine a green light along with us.
