Is America prepared to protect its children?
Disaster Preparedness in America
For the sixth year in a row, Save the Children has commissioned a state-by-state assessment of U.S. preparation and safety standards for children in child care facilities and in schools.
While progress has been made, still this year more than half the states fall short on preparedness. That’s why we continue to work with national, state and local level policymakers to set standards that help minimize the risk and reduce the impact of disasters kids. And why we’ve created the Get Ready Get Safe initiative. Because you can never be too prepared for a disaster.
