Gosh ! Preparing a kid for a new sib is a manageable task. Preparing for twins, fortunately, isn't twice as difficult. And Triplets - I suspect its not so much more difficult for your 6 year-old to adjust to, as it will be more exhausting for you as parents.
It sounds as though you're doing excellently at involving her - allowing her to help with the chores for the babies will be important for her ( emphaziing that she is now such an important older sister that she will be really valuable in caring for them ) - and will slightly lessen your own load. Keep it up.
Involve her in decision-making where appropriate - and I like your approach of emphasizing that though she may not remember how much help she needed in her early days, now these little ones will need a lot of assistance, and she will be important as well as loved
