The Big Idea: It’s important for kids to know who can help in an emergency.
- After watching the video together, ask kids to name some of the special helpers they can go to in an emergency (such as a doctor, firefighter, police officer, or teacher).
- Later, you can play an “I Spy” game when you are out together. Say, “I spy a special helper. Who is it?” Or, “I spy a place where special helpers work. What is it?” (It might be a school, fire station, hospital, police station, or an ambulance.) When you see a special helper, you might even introduce kids to them. If kids are familiar with the special helpers around them, they’re likely to be less scared in an emergency.
