NYC Emergency Management superhero Ready Girl took her superpowers to St. Joseph’s School for the Deaf last Friday, April 15 to teach students about emergency preparedness. Teaming up with her trusty sidekick Jon Lamberton, a certified deaf interpreter, Ready Girl taught first, second and third graders how to make their own emergency plans, identify emergency contacts and how to pack their own Go Bags. Ready Girl gave out youth backpacks filled to the brim with emergency kids’ guides, flashlights and coloring books to make them into ‘preparedness superheroes’.
