Preparedness for Child Care Providers

Childcare BinderEmergency Response Planning for Child Care Providers

The outcome of an emergency situation is dependent on how well the people involved have planned and prepared. Panhandle Public Health District has created the guide, Emergency Response Planning for Child Care Providers, in order to promote recommendations for keeping children safe and parents informed.

This guide identifies the concerns in the Nebraska Panhandle and offers examples from other organizations and input from subject matter experts to better equip you with the tools you need to develop an emergency response plan. The information can be tailored to meet the needs of your child care facility. Be sure to evaluate the risk for your specific location.
