Emergency preparedness and response for state and territory licensing agencies

Creating emergency preparedness and response (EPR) plans can lessen the impact an emergency or disaster has on child care, including child care licensing. EPR plans should specify how the licensing agency will continue to operate in the event of an emergency or disaster. These plans should also specify how the agency will continue to administer the licensing program and prevent disruption in services. By conducting hazard assessments, State and Territory child care licensing administrators can identify the different types of hazards (such as natural disasters, outbreaks, severe weather, accidental or technical hazards, and terrorist attacks) that may affect the State or Territory and respond accordingly in their EPR plans. This document is designed to help child care licensing administrators create emergency plans for their agencies. (author abstract)
