I am sure you learned something new
from completing the worksheet.
The worksheet helps us think about what we need
and who we can depend on
when an emergency or disaster happens.
Now, we will work on the magnet.
The magnet is very important.
It is information posted on your refrigerator
that tells people how to help you
and who to contact if there was an emergency.
the people who arrive at your home to help you,
relying on this information,
even though they may be strangers,
and you do not know them,
their job is to come into a person's home
and help people who are hurt, injured or not safe
during an emergency.
Using our Feeling Safe, Being Safe kit,
there are certain things that we can do
that are gonna warn us when we arrive
and see the magnet on the refrigerator that says,
"This is who I am.
These are the medications I take.
And these are very important things
that you need to know about me."
For instance, "I am deaf.
I only use American sign language.
I don't need to be overwhelmed
by 10 people walking into my house
with all these lights and things flashing
because that affects my disability."
Let's now fill out your magnet.
Your facilitator will provide you
with permanent markers,
so that the information on the magnet
will not rub off or smear.
Like, Sam, in the video, remember to post the magnet
on the refrigerator for all to see.
At the end of this video,
please use your worksheet to complete your magnet
and the Discussion Questions and Activity.
