Date Issued: 2019
Publisher(s): National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness
Description: Emergencies often happen suddenly and can be devastating to programs and communities. Emergency preparedness is the process of taking steps to ensure your early childhood education program is safe before, during, and after an emergency. Whether a natural disaster such as a tornado hits or a man-made emergency such as the appearance of a violent intruder occurs, early childhood educators need to know how to respond quickly and appropriately to situations that could happen in their program, center, or home. The purpose of this manual is to help child care providers and Head Start staff create an emergency preparedness plan specific to their program, center, or home. (author abstract)
