BE IN-THE-KNOW ABOUT EMERGENCIES IN YOUR AREA

Do you know if your local school is on lock down? How about if there is police activity in your neighborhood? These are important things all child cares need to be aware of. Here is a list of websites you can access to sign up for notifications so you will know what is happening and what
precautions you need to take.  Watch for upcoming trainings offered through Child Care Aware that will cover information on how to prepare for emergencies, school lockdown procedures, and local resources available to you.
