The Bay Area Urban Areas Security Initiative

Get Ready 5th Grade Bay Area

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.
