Preparing for unexpected events is an important part of keeping children safe and healthy all year long. Events like the spread of a serious infection, an explosion, an earthquake, or a weather event, such as a hurricane, may cause health problems for large numbers of people, and especially for children.
October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, which provides an opportunity for schools, communities, and states to talk about the best ways to prevent bullying. CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention recognizes efforts to improve the school environment and to prevent bullying nationwide.
