Many children have questions and can feel uneasy when emergencies occur in their communities. Together, we can help children learn about important community helpers in a calm and fun environment, so when an emergency strikes, children will understand who to look for and how to help. Created by WUCF in Florida, Meet the Helpers is a public media initiative designed to introduce children to public safety careers and to assist them with emergency preparedness. Watch the videos and find resources below.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers.You will always find people who are helping. '"
