Our Wildfire Resiliency Kits were created in partnership with FireSmart™ BC!
The kit is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 8. Just like our other literacy kits, it aims to provide children with a way to explore and learn about a topic.
Wildfires are a real concern for our region. It is likely that many children in our communities will be directly or indirectly impacted by wildfires. We hope that this kit will help children to be better prepared if they do experience a wildfire.
The materials in this kit will provide children with increased knowledge of how wildfires happen and an understanding of how communities and environments recover following a wildfire. The kit will also provide a safe way for children to explore the emotions they may experience in the event of a wildfire.
Resiliency is the ability to cope with the mental and emotional stress of a crisis. We believe that through the learning and exploration in this kit, children will be more resilient in the face of wildfires.
