Emergency Preparedness - Do You Have a Plan?
Child care educators must have a plan to protect children in the event of emergencies. The process of developing and maintaining a plan along with regular practice drills makes it more likely that the child care agency will be equipped to protect children when a disaster strikes. Your Licensing Program Evaluator will review and monitor your plan to ensure that it complies with the requirements in the emergency preparedness licensing law.
