You may not have be prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse, but do you have an emergency plan and supplies ready in case of disaster?
You do? Great! And does your au pair know the plan? Fire preparedness is pretty universal, but consider this: depending on the climate of his/her home country, your au pair may not be familiar with the tornadoes, blizzards, and high winds, that hit the Hoosier State frequently, or our less-frequent earthquakes.
If you don’t have a plan, consider making one. And whether you’ve just started your plan, or you’ve had one for years, be sure to practice the disaster procedures with your whole family, your au pair, and any other individuals who work in your home.
