The Miller Place School District recently hosted an educational assembly at Andrew Muller Primary School focused on teaching children what to do in the event of an emergency or disaster situation. The program, BeReadyLI Children’s Workshop, is the result of a collaboration between United Way of Long Island, PSEG Long Island, and 2-1-1 Long Island. The program provides information on preparation before, during, and after disasters.
The interactive assembly captivated students’ attention through a series of engaging videos and activities to better describe safety initiatives for disasters. The students were taught the importance of knowing their full names and their caregivers or guardians, recognizing who in the community can assist in case of an emergency and what to bring with them in case of an emergency situation. When the workshop concluded, students took home refresher materials to share with parents, string bags and play construction hats.
