Save lives and prevent injury by providing leadership and/or support to Disaster Cycle Services team members

through The Pillowcase Project. The Pillowcase Project is a national youth preparedness program offered by Red

Cross regions across the country. The 40- or 60-minute presentation provides emergency preparedness education to

youth in grades 3-5 (ages 8-11) in school classrooms and other settings. Numerous tools have been developed for

this program including a standardized curriculum, workbook, quizzes, and activities which have been carefully

constructed with the help of curriculum and hazard experts. Many tools for presenters have been developed to foster

consistency and fidelity to the program goals and objectives. The highly interactive presentation addresses home fire

safety, local natural hazards, psychosocial coping skills, and household preparedness steps like making a plan and

a kit.
