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.
