Question What Challenges Do You Face with Emergency Planning?

What are the biggest or most annoying challenges you face with regard to crisis planning, emergency preparedness, emergency plan licensure requirements, etc.? What keeps you up at night regarding tornados, violent intruders, civil unrest, etc.?

I'm about to launch a website and blog with resources to support child-based businesses in their disaster preparedness and I need a few thoughtful daycare providers to let me know what resources they need most.

In my day-job, I'm a professional emergency manager for a healthcare organization with 7000 employees. I'm also a dad to two little ones and the daycare we used had some challenges with preparing for disasters. This project is aimed to help!

I’m not selling anything and I don’t want you to sign up for anything! Any providers/owners willing to assist would have free, early access to the resources we create in return for their help.

FEMA offers training and resources for childcare providers.

Our state has a form we fill out that asks questions and really forces you to document. It helps get our minds thinking about what we would do and what we need.
The only thing I searched for beyond this form was a printable list to help me pack an emergency backpack.

State form: mn childcare licensing emergency plan
