Child Care Disaster Response and Recovery Webinar Series

In the Fall of 2017, Child Care Aware® of America’s emergency preparedness team launched an all new Disaster Response and Recovery Webinar Series to help meet CCR&R staff needs. The webinar series introduced CCR&Rs to partnering organizations who serve in a response/recovery capacity and will provide an overview of resources available to children and families. The webinar series is also designed to help CCR&R organizations better understand their role after disasters.

Each season, we plan to have a new series of webinars focusing on preparedness! See our upcoming webinars and archived webinars below.

Upcoming Webinars

Helping Child Care Providers Prepare for Radiation Emergencies
March 26, 2018 8-9 p.m. ET

Child care providers play a critical role in keeping children safe from a variety of emergencies. Planning for emergencies like fires, tornadoes, and earthquakes is common practice in child care programs, but some emergencies with less probability also exist and child care providers may not know what steps to take to keep themselves and children safe. One of the least understood and greatly feared threats is a radiation emergency. Radiation emergencies may be unintentional (e.g., caused by a transportation accident) or intentional (caused by humans with the intent to cause harm to large numbers of people). Experts from public health organizations, including the CDC, will lead this webinar to help the child care industry understand the threats presented by radiation, response techniques, and resources available to become better prepared.
