National Advisory Committee on Children and Disasters (NACCD): Pediatric Disaster Training Report   [open pdf - 165KB]

From the Introduction: "The PDTWG [Pediatric Disaster Training Working Group] identified several priority health, mental health and safety needs of children and youth during and after disasters. The aim of these recommendations (as a subset in advance of the full report) is to improve health and mental health professional, responder, emergency manager, teacher, childcare provider, family member, youth and the general public's knowledge and confidence to act to assess, treat and support children and youth (newborn-18 years old) during and after disasters. The PDTWG's goal is to identify strategies to support the overall health and safety needs of children in disasters and to help ensure health and mental health professionals, first responders, education personnel, childcare workers, and the public will respond effectively to their needs."
