Post Disaster Reunification of Children: A Nationwide Approach

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and America Red Cross (ARC) released Post Disaster Reunification of Children: A Nationwide Approach. This document is the first attempt to establish a framework and whole community approach for reunifying children separated from their parents or legal guardians in the aftermath of a disaster. To ensure that this initiative was truly comprehensive, whole community partners from across the country were engaged in the development of the document. Additionally, NCMEC recently launched the Unaccompanied Minors Registry (UMR), our country’s first national repository created to support the MCMEC's ability to collect, store, report, and act on information related to children separated as a result of a disaster. The UMR is available during all disasters (not only Presidential). more
