Every school has an emergency plan. It is your responsibility, as a parent, to make sure that you know what that emergency plan is. I know that in the area that I live in, if you go to a private school, all of the private schools have special emergency preparedness numbers for those occasions. It is really important that you have that number. Put it in your purse or in your phone. As far as public schools go, make sure that you are aware of the emergency procedures are at your child's school. One thing that I find very intriguing is that when we practice drills on the public school level, don't really get that we are not messing around. As a parent, please, please understand that we are doing this with your child's safety in mind and to make sure that you follow the rules as we go along.

Emergency Preparedness Specialist

Cari Butler is a Westside Los Angeles mom and native Californian whose interest in Emergency Preparedness began when her daughter started school and was required to have a personal emergency kit. That raised the question: "Why shouldn't everyone have an emergency kit?" Her concern led her to thoroughly research the subject and then create her own business. She now provides consultation services for families and businesses, as well as offering the Emergency Café line of kits.

Cari’s mission is to get everyone prepared, and she has been on that mission since 2005.  She has been a guest speaker at several conferences and schools. She was asked to participate in the 100th Anniversary Earthquake Conference in San Francisco. Her client list is a virtual who’s who in Hollywood.  

Cari’s website, emergencycafe.com was just awarded the 2009 Best Safety Site by Nickelodeon Parent Choice Awards.  Emergency Café backpacks were the “IT” gift this season in the Dancing with the Stars television show gifting suite.  She is also a contributing writer and blogger on many mommy sites including Hot Moms Club, Gurumommy, Twittermoms, City Mommy and Mommy Track’d. In addition she has been featured on several TV shows and has done numerous radio spots as well.
