This federal webpage provides guidance for emergency planning with children. It begins by noting disaster planning, response, and recovery efforts must consider the unique needs and abilities of children, and that children are positive influencers, can become leaders, and can be confident during an emergency. Guidance is then provided on developing a youth preparedness program. Links are provided for implementing a youth preparedness program, obtaining funding for a youth preparedness program, strategies for developing a risk management plan for youth preparedness programs, planning materials, and policies and policy guidance for supporting youth preparedness efforts and continued provision of services before, during, and after disasters.
