Disaster preparedness.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a downloadable Guide to Citizen Preparedness on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Web site, www.fema.gov/areyouready/. The guide brings together facts on disaster survival techniques, disaster-specific information (i.e., information about terrorism, bomb treats, suspicious parcels and letters, chemical and biological weapons, homeland security alerts, etc.) and how to prepare for and respond to both natural and man-made disasters.

Additionally, the Academy of Pediatrics has information about disaster preparedness to meet children's needs, www.aap.org/terrorism.
