Australian Red Cross has developed these resources to help teachers educate students from pre-school to year 12 about important emergency preparedness and recovery information. If you intend to use these resources please also download this short evaluation survey. Completing the evaluation will help Red Cross to ensure we are providing schools with appropriate and high quality emergency preparedness and recovery resources. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Please email us for more information about these resources.
