Emergency preparedness and response planning

Share
Description:
This brief provides an overview of requirements about emergency preparedness and response planning for emergencies resulting from a natural disaster, or an emergency situation such as violence at a child care facility. A series of briefs about CCDF health and safety requirements was first released in July 2016 by the National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance (ECQA Center) in response to the CCDBG Act of 2014. A summary of findings about the topic from the 2017 Child Care Licensing Study is a feature of this July 2020 update to those briefs. Data for the study were compiled from state child care licensing regulations in effect as of December 31, 2017 (ECQA Center, 2020a, 2020b, 2020c). Licensing and CCDF Administrators may find the brief helpful as they consider revisions to state standards for both licensed and license-exempt providers about planning for emergencies, such as natural disasters, power outages, and acts of violence. This brief does not provide examples of emergency plans, but does include links to resources and tools that can assist states, early care and education providers, and out-of-school time programs with developing emergency preparedness and response plans as required by the CCDF Program final rule.
