Preparedness Workshop for Childcare Providers

An opportunity to prepare your AGENCY, STAFF and
THE CHILDREN IN YOUR CARE
for an emergency in Norwalk

 

Date: Wednesday, January 10

Workshop: 12:00p-2:00p

Place: Norwalk City Hall- 125 East Ave

You’re welcome to bring your lunch. Drinks and dessert will be provided.

Cost: FREE!

 

Norwalk’s Childcare providers are invited to attend this program to discuss how you and your staff can plan and prepare for, respond to, recover from the effects of a major disaster affecting your facility and/or the City.

Why Should You Participate? 

A major disaster affecting Norwalk could result in long-term power outages, infrastructure damage, flooding and other issues. Childcare providers, both large and small, provide a critical link to families. After a disaster, it’s critical for businesses to reopen immediately so residents can return to work. Workers with young children will depend upon their day care providers to resume operations so they can begin their own recovery.

 

We recognize that Childcare providers are required to have emergency plans in place to safeguard the children in your care. We want to ensure your facility has the plans and resources in place to effectively prepare, respond and recover to an emergency and help you build response networks and relationships with other day care providers.

Program Objectives:

  • Provide tools and templates to assist Childcare providers in creating Emergency / Continuity plans.
  • Identify for participants the roles and limitations of local government assistance and their roles as community partners.

 

For questions, or to register, please email Mary Oster: moster@norwalkct.org or call 203-854-4148

 

This program is sponsored by the Norwalk Fire Department- Office of Emergency Management and the Norwalk Early Childhood office.
