The Get Ready 5th Grade Bay Area (GR5) program is taking the first steps in changing our youth’s
perceived vulnerabilities to disasters. The GR5 curriculum engages the students in a classroom setting with
a 1-hour lesson covering a variety of emergency and disaster preparedness topics. The program
emphasizes capacity building by teaching the students clear and action-oriented preparedness steps to take
as a household to be prepared for an emergency or disaster event.
