Free Tommy the Turtle Books to Prepare Children for Emergencies

Sep 10, 2018

September is National Preparedness Month, and the Prepare Wyoming team is offering a free resource for libraries around the state to encourage literacy and help children become better prepared for emergencies. Similar to the work of fire departments teaching the traditional “Stop, Drop, Roll” type of messaging, their free Tommy the Turtle books help children understand what to do during a flood or tornado event.

Prepare Wyoming is encouraging libraries to request some of these free books to have as part of your library collection or in other locations where children could access the materials.

Learn more and request the books.

Similarly, if your library is interested in some of their other free programming relating to preparedness such as Hands Only CPR or other offerings, you can let them know that as well.
