Emergency Preparedness: Incidents Affecting Children

Description: Emergency preparedness must encompass the needs of the entire population; in the United States, children and youth represent 26% of the population. Therefore, in any emergency of significant scope—whether intentional or accidental—children will almost certainly be included among the victims. Yet children are often an overlooked population within emergency-preparedness planning. This module aims to increase your awareness of the importance of pediatric issues within the broader context of emergency preparedness
