WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Youngsters - sometimes more technologically savvy than their parents - know all about the Y2K computer problem. And they have concerns.

The Y2K for Kids section recently posted on the FEMA for Kids Web site is aimed at relieving those concerns. The section provides information on what the Y2K problem is and the facts about possible, though unlikely, consequences. It also gives the youngsters information on what FEMA is doing to protect the emergency services sector of this country and specific actions their families can take to be prepared for Y2K or any kind of emergency. A statement from the President and a message from FEMA's Deputy Director is also included.
