IAEM-USA Children in Disaster Caucus seeks input to help improve planning and preparedness for children in disasters

from IAEM

The IAEM-USA Children in Disasters Caucus is working on a number of projects to improve preparedness and response for children in disasters in the United States. To successfully complete these projects and help improve preparedness and response for children in disasters, we need information about what various agencies and organizations are doing throughout the United States. We've developed a survey to gather information about seven specific projects from emergency managers and others around the United States The projects focus on:
    1. Preparedness training and efforts for children
    2. Relocation issues for children affected by disasters
    3. Management of known sex offenders during disasters
    4. Protocols for children stranded at school after a disaster
    5. The need for a national dialogue between emergency management and childcare providers/schools
    6. Foster care surge capacity plans and resources
    7. Courses and training for emergency managers on children in disasters
If you have any information on any of these topics, please share five to ten minutes of your time to take the survey and help improve planning and preparedness for children in disasters. more
