An Easy Guide to Developing an Emergency Child Care System (Free Child Care in the Aftermath of Major Disasters).
A program and related materials for providing child care free of charge in the aftermath of widespread disaster to children ranging in age from infancy through second grade are described in this guidebook. In Section I, the Temporary Emergency Child Care (TECC) program is discussed. In particular, the nature of TECC services is indicated, the design of the TECC program is described, the plan for providing TECC in Texas is outlined, and the implementation of TECC in the aftermath of a tornado is described in the form of a volunteer's diary. Section II of the guide contains information for equipping and storing materials in a 14-foot supply trailer. Diagrams and photographs of the trailer and its equipment are provided along with instructions for loading and unloading. Section III lists age-appropriate, recommended, basic instructional materials as well as general supplies for stocking the trailer. (The author emphasizes that at the time of its publication, this guidebook and the program it describes appeared to be the only one of its kind in existence.) (Author/RH)
