Description

Knowledge Management Research: Disaster Preparedness, Response, and Communication Planning is a brief created to address real-time needs identified in response to the COVID-19 crisis and disasters more generally. To support child welfare agencies with planning for disasters, developing disaster responses, and putting in place the framework for communication during a disaster, the Center for States Knowledge Management Team compiled information child welfare agencies can use to work on these tasks, including resources for disaster planning, child welfare basics for first responders, communication planning, and examples of child welfare agency disaster plans.
