How should you communicate with family members during an emergency? What should you do in the event of a fire? These are some of the questions Fort Smallwood Elementary students pondered when making suggestions for a children’s emergency preparedness activity booklet that will soon be shared with other children. In late December, the Anne Arundel County Office of Emergency Management honored Michelle Laurie’s fifth-grade class for giving their feedback, which was included in two separate booklets — one for toddlers and one for kids their age — that will be posted to the county website once it undergoes an upgrade in the coming weeks. “It was a pleasure to work with the school,” said Chrissy Cornwell, an emergency planner with the Anne Arundel County Office of Emergency Management. “The children were fantastic to work with throughout the process, and they were able to share everything they learned with their friends and family.” To stay updated on unveiling of the booklets, visit, select the “departments” tab and choose “emergency management.”
