Flatter World and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are working together to make younger generations more informed and prepared for the unexpected. The FEMA/Flat Stanley collaboration will continue to provide kids with state of the art interactive and informative experiences both inside and outside of the classroom in the area of emergency preparedness.
FEMA Flat Stanley & Stella are characters created to help teach kids about emergency preparedness, and more specifically about hurricane awareness, and how they can use their interactive experiences to make disaster preparedness plans and kits fun and informative.
Children can download and create their own customized character from the website or Flat Stanley mobile app. Then they can share their experiences of creating a preparedness kit and share their adventure with other Flat Stanley users.
“FEMA” is now a destination on the Flat Stanley Mobile Application so anyone can create a character and send it on a FEMA tour. On the tour, kids can send their characters to visit FEMA headquarters, interact with agency personnel, experience FEMA field operations, and learn how to prepare their classmates and families for emergencies.

A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them.
You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
