IAEM Thursday Learning Series webinar on Feb. 21 will explore 'Why Protecting Children in Disasters is Still Innovative'

from IAEM

The 2017 and 2018 disaster season was catastrophic and the greatest impact was on our most vulnerable population – children. Although children who experience disaster are five times more likely to have serious emotional trauma than adults, as a nation we are behind in implementing programs and standards to protect them. In fact 79% of recommendations made by the National Commission on Children in Disasters in 2010 remain unfulfilled. However, there are innovative ways to address the current gaps in child protection and ensure communities are equipped to protect children. Join us at 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST, Feb. 21, for the next IAEM Thursday Learning Series webinar to understand the unique needs of children, learn best practices from the 2017 and 2018 disaster season, and explore how you can pioneer new programs to protect children and advocate for policies that create lasting change.
