Emergency Preparedness

The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 requires Lead Agencies to develop state- and territory-wide child care disaster plans. These plans must demonstrate how each state and territory will address the needs of children—including the need for safe child care—before, during, and after a major disaster or emergency, including a state of emergency declared by the governor.

These resources can provide guidance to states and territories as they develop and implement disaster plans.

This brief, one in a series of nine addressing health and safety requirements specified in the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, provides an overview of emergency preparedness and response planning for center-based and home-based child care settings.

Natural disasters and emergencies can be emotionally devastating and cause property damage that can be costly to repair. Child care programs are not immune to these risks and should plan and prepare for any event (minor as well as catastrophic) that may disrupt the day-to-day operations of their child care businesses. Emergency plans help ensure child care programs and staff are prepared to react in a manner that protects the safety of children and staff when an emergency occurs. This guide is available in English and en Español.

This tool helps States and Territories begin or expand their emergency preparedness planning efforts to include other key partners in the State orTerritory. Links to additional information and contact information is also available for some of the agencies (marked with an asterisk).

After an emergency or disaster, communities have to recover from the damage left behind by the event.
