The Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) in Child Care Training provides early educators with information and tools to prepare for many types of emergencies. The EPR in Child Care Training addresses NC Child Care Rules on emergency preparedness, current best practice recommendations, and guidance on completing the online EPR Plan. The EPR Plan template can be found on the North Carolina Emergency Management website.
The training is presented in a two and a half hour session. NC Child Care Rules require that a designated individual from all licensed centers and family child care homes complete the training and submit a facility EPR Plan.
1.Learn background information of emergency events
2.Identify ways to prepare staff and children
3.Review practice drills and procedures
4.Identify information and decisions required for completing and submitting the EPR Plan and for emergency planning, response and recovery
Be prepared! Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
