CCDBG Topic: Emergency preparedness and response planning for emergencies

Description: In the event of an emergency, do you and your staff know what to do to protect children and lead them to safety? Planning and practicing the steps you can take before an emergency happens is the best way to protect yourself and the children in your care. OSSE along with Strategic Educational Consulting (SEDC, LLC) has developed a new Emergency Response Plan Template for providers to use in meeting the new licensing regulations. This training session is designed to help participants create a comprehensive plan and complete the template step by step including identification of potential threats near you, setting up an emergency alert system and communicating with parents and first responders. In addition, the training will teach participants the latest strategies on what to do if you have a lockdown, shelter-in-place or evacuate. Participants will practice applying these strategies in a table-top exercise which uses realistic scenarios to stimulate discussion.
