Day Cares

No matter where the child care facility is or how large it is, children, staff, and even parents may be at risk as a result of natural or human-caused disasters. Effective planning and response is achieved by coordination, cooperation, and the participation of individuals and the community at large.

Nursing Homes

Nursing homes can carry out their emergency management responsibilities by focusing on four interrelated activities: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Each of the activities is a phase of a comprehensive emergency management process. The overall goal is to protect residents and staff from environmental and man-made threats and to minimize their impact on operations.

Personal Care Facilities

It is essential that personal care facility owners and administrators equip themselves to be disaster-flexible, to be able to respond to disasters that endanger the lives of residents and staff and damage property. While not all disasters may be anticipated, like an impending storm, studies do demonstrate that preparation, knowing how to respond when a disaster strikes, and being calm and flexible saves lives and reduces physical damage.

Assisted Living Facilities

Natural disasters test the best plans made by assisted living providers and force us to make difficult choices under stressful circumstances, the most serious of which is often whether or not to evacuate a facility. Further confounding attempts to offer emergency preparedness guidelines is that assisted living facilities differ greatly in their population, location, resources, services offered, and structure.
