USA – New child care law to force states failing Save the Children’s disaster report card to require emergency plans

10 January 2015   |   , ,

Save the Children’s 2014 Disaster Report Card showed that 19 states still fail to meet all three child care emergency planning standards, which are based on recommendations of the National Commission on Children in Disasters formed after Hurricane Katrina.

The standards are that states require all child-care providers to have 1) evacuation/relocation plans, 2) family-child reunification plans and 3) emergency plans for children with special needs.
