Report: 18 states and DC fail to meet emergency standards for kids*
from USA Today
From July 30:
Are we prepared to protect our children? Eighteen states and the District of Columbia still fall short on at least one basic element of kids' care in Save the Children's state-by-state, child evacuation plans for major disasters. As of 2015, 32 states have met all elements of Save the Children's criteria compared to just four states in 2008. The requirements created by the NGO necessitate the creation of an evacuation/relocation plan for children in child care, a family-child reunification plan, an evacuation plan for children with special needs and a K-12 multiple disaster plan.
