Kids These Days – Jan 18

Tuesday, January 18 at 2pm and 7pm


If the “big one” hit Alaska today how ready would your household be? Is your emergency kit put together, and will the whole family know what to do or where to go should there be a fire or flood? And how do we explain to children about the bad things that happen in the world like disasters, shootings or war? Merry Carlson, Preparedness Manager for the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management for the State of Alaska, and Rick Calcote, Behavioral Health Disaster Response Coordinator for the State of Alaska will be our guests to discuss these questions and more.

Plus – seniors remember the 1964 Alaska earthquake and we’ll learn how international Sesame Street is using their brand of programming to help children understand war, terrorism and disaster in countries like Kosovo, Palestine, Northern Ireland and Indonesia.
