Safety of children and staff is always the highest priority for GSA Child Care Centers.
Security and emergency preparedness at child care centers, work, home, and in the community is everyone's responsibility. This requires coordinated prevention, protection, response, and recovery activities that span the preparedness spectrum.
GSA Child Care has developed a Provider Emergency Preparedness Toolbox to help providers develop and evaluate their emergency preparedness plans. These tools facilitate a deeper look and understanding of the nature of potential emergencies, and what actions a child care center must consider if emergencies do occur. Life safety, communication, efficiency, and roles and responsibilities are critical components to enhancing the security and preparedness of all occupants- big and little.
