Earthquake Preparedness: What Every Childcare Provider Should Know.
California State Office of Emergency Services, Sacramento.
This brochure provides information to help child care providers reduce or avoid damage, injuries, or loss of life during earthquakes. It first discusses steps to implement before an earthquake strikes, including securing household contents, and practicing with children how to duck and cover. Next, the brochure describes what to do during an earthquake, when one is indoors, outdoors, or in a car. It then discusses what to do after a quake, including anticipating aftershocks, reassuring the children, and dealing with damaged gas and electrical lines. Helping children and their parents cope with their reactions to a quake is then discussed. The brochure concludes with some special safety tips and a list of sources for additional information. (HTH)
