Emergency Preparedness and Response
Be prepared! Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count. NC Child Care Rules 10A NCAC 09 .0607(b) and 10A NCAC 09 .1705(b)(6) require that a designated individual from all licensed centers and family child care homes complete the training and submit a facility EPR Plan.
The Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) in Child Care Training provides early educators with information and tools to prepare for many types of emergencies. The EPR in Child Care Training addresses NC Child Care Rules on emergency preparedness, current best practice recommendations, and guidance on completing the online EPR Plan. The EPR Plan template is located on the North Carolina Emergency Management website.
