Review by: Howard Taras - November 17, 2014
"Hendricks has done it again. Another information-filled guide for preschool (and school) adminisrators and educators. The material is so well organized that all readers should have a clear idea of their role in both preparednes and reaction to disasters."
Review by: Valora Washington, CEO, Council for Professional Recognition - November 17, 2014
“Every parent and staff member in any early care and education setting should be asking the question: what’s the plan for dealing with emergency situations? Everyday headline news makes it all-too-evident that unimaginable disasters can happen to any program, anywhere, at any time. Charlotte Hendricks and Michele Pettibone have prepared an essential resource to help parents and programs assess their risks, respond to disaster situations and plan and prepare. One hopes to never need this book—but read it, prepare with it, and keep it nearby just in case!”
Review by: Jody Martin, Vice President of Education and TrainingCreme de la Creme - November 17, 2014
“This important, user friendly resource is not only a “how to” book, but a planning guide designed to help with the arduous task of preparing for a potential disaster. The activities for children included in the resource will familiarize them with the necessary procedures in the event a disaster happens. The combination of a staff that is fully prepared, and children that understand the importance of the procedures that need to be followed, will result in the safe and effective management of the crisis.”
