Junior Citizen 2009

The emergency planners in Hounslow have been hard at work making sure its residents are prepared for disasters. We have been teaching students from Year 6 about the disasters they face in Hounslow and how they can better prepare themselves from the most common outcome of emergencies in the borough - evacuation. Students correctly suggested that in this situation they should have a Grab Bag, so we got them to make one! Students tried to take everything from bike helmets to DVDs with them, but were quick to realise what they actually needed, and we helped them remember everything they had learn't by giving them a USB wristband (see photos) loaded with useful info. If you would like anymore info on this project, just email me!
