Child Care Resource & Referral


Creating and maintaining a safe environment is a major concern for all programs, and starts with making sure you are prepared for emergencies. Program policies should include emergency policies to be implemented in the event of accident, fire, flood, evacuation, or other unforeseen emergencies. Each child's file must include phone numbers of the person(s) to contact in an emergency, and a release form authorizing the program to seek emergency treatment for the child if the parent or other emergency contact is unavailable.

Be Ready!

  • All center staff should be fully trained in first aid and CPR, and should know how to respond immediately in the event of an emergency.
  • Emergency numbers should be posted in each classroom and by each telephone, along with directions for staff response in various emergency situations.
  • Have syrup of ipecac on hand in the first aid cabinet for when you need to induce vomiting. Never give ipecac, however, without being instructed to do so by a doctor or a Poison Control Center.
