Parents... it's time to make sure you are emergency prepared.
August is school preparedness month in Illinois. And with the kids headed off to school, parents need a game plan in case an emergency happens. The Illinois emergency management agency wants you to know your school's plans for keeping kids safe during an emergency.
Make sure you provide your current emergency contact information to school officials. Also, find out where your child will be taken in the event of an evacuation during school hours.
