Emergency preparedness, response, and recovery resources for child care programs

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Child Care State Capacity Building Center;
Date Issued: February, 2020
Publisher(s): Child Care State Capacity Building Center
Description: Natural disasters and emergencies can be emotionally devastating and cause property damage that can be costly to repair. Child care programs are not immune to these risks and should plan and prepare for any event (minor as well as catastrophic) that may disrupt the day-to-day operations of their child care businesses. Emergency plans help ensure child care programs and staff are prepared to react in a manner that protects the safety of children and staff when an emergency occurs. Emergency plans also establish mechanisms to help programs during the recovery phase and get businesses up and running as soon as possible. This promotes continuity of care and reduces the risks of clientele and income loss. This guide provides resources to help child care programs begin the process of developing emergency plans or begin the process of updating their current plans. (author abstract)
