Leveling the Playing Field: A Concept of Operations for Pediatric Disaster Education

Leveling the Playing Field: A Concept of Operations for Pediatric Disaster Education

Based on the findings of the Eastern Great Lakes Pediatric Consortium for Disaster Response Education Team this summary lays out the need for a whole child, whole community and whole population concept of operations that systematically includes children at all levels of disaster education starting at the community level. The document is designed to be shared with leadership and policy makers at the local, regional, state and federal level to ensure children are never left out of disaster prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery operations.
