I felt the information was very thorough in the new Food Allergies module and I loved the food substitution sections!  Having several areas from "experts" was an intriguing way to provide information from different angles (for example: Redleaf publications, examples from a childcare agency from S. Carolina, C.D.C. and Child Health).  I loved the additional resources section; I plan on locating a couple of the books you mentioned to have on hand for when the opportunity arises.  I had no idea there were so many books to help children understand their allergies.  I am also going to place a drawing of an Epi-pen on the cabinets where we store them for children who have it prescribed.

    BEING PREPARED FOR DISASTER EVENTS

    31st Head Start Parent Conference
    Monday, December 8, 2014
    Full-day Pre-Conference Session

    Hilton New Orleans Riverside
    New Orleans, LA


    A disaster or emergency event can occur anywhere, anytime.  Is  your program prepared to respond and keep the children under your care and  your staff safe?  In this workshop, participants will discuss the various types of disaster situations that could affect their programs and explore appropriate responses to a variety of situations which may require evacuation, shelter, or lockdown.  Current national recommendations specific to protecting infants, toddlers, and young children will be presented for a broad spectrum of disaster situations ranging from the commonly practiced fire evacuation, to the often overlooked procedure for disaster even that occurs while transporting children.

    This workshop will cover the basics of disaster preparation for all aspects of your program, including written procedures, warning systems, communication, and facility/vehicle criteria; as well as the protection of client and program records.  In addition, presenters will discuss steps for recovery after an event.

    Participants should bring their current disaster/emergency plans to the workshop to review areas of effectiveness and determine areas that may need improvement.  Participants will discuss disaster situations unique to their locale, procedures and methods they found successful, and those that did not meet expectations.
