This website explains the process of developing and implementing emergency response plans for States, Tribes, and child welfare agencies is complex. It then provides links to resources intended to help States and jurisdictions in developing comprehensive disaster preparedness plans and responding to emergencies quickly and effectively to protect children and families. The resources are organized by preparedness, response, and recovery, and include resources for professionals and for families. In addition, nine resources are listed that provide links to resources on building capacity for disaster preparedness at a child welfare agency, caring for children in a disaster, disaster planning, management, and communication, public health emergency information, and addressing children’s needs throughout preparedness planning, response, and recovery efforts during and following a disaster.
