IAEM-USA Children & Disaster Caucus and CDS partner on Oct. 16 webinar

from IAEM

The IAEM-USA Children & Disaster Caucus is partnering with the Church of the Brethren Children’s Disaster Services (CDS) to host a webinar on “Emergency Childcare Services Post-Disaster,” Oct. 16, 2019, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT. The purpose of the event is to educate local and state managers on the services they provide and how to better prepare for the needs of children post-disaster. CDS has been meeting the needs of children by setting up childcare centers in shelters and disaster assistance centers across the nation since 1980. Specially trained to respond to traumatized children, these volunteers provide a calm, safe and reassuring presence in the midst of the chaos created by tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, wildfires and any natural or human-caused disaster. Speakers will include Dr. Heather L. Beal, chair, IAEM-USA Children & Disaster Caucus, and Lisa Crouch, associate director of children’s disaster services, Church of the Brethren.
