How do States and Territories Plan for and Respond to Hostile Intruder Incidents?

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.

This brief is part of the Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (EPRR) discussion brief series and provides suggestions to Lead Agencies on actions related to hostile intruders that should be considered as disaster plans are developed. Topics addressed include what policy, requirements, and resources Lead Agencies can put in place to help providers ensure the best outcomes for staff, children, and families.
