Emergency Plan Guidance and Sample Templates

Child Care Emergency Planning Tool Kit

The Child Care Emergency Planning Tool Kit should yield an emergency plan for child care centers that enhances safety of the staff and children in the center and satisfies the licensing requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. The kit includes a three-part plan (Basic Plan, Checklists and Supporting Documents), and a Childcare Facilities Planning Guide that helps fill in the blanks to complete the plan.

Questions about child care and child care programs should be directed to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. Help with emergency planning can be obtained from the Blair County EMA office by calling 814-940-5901.
