Our mission is to keep children safe by preparing childcare programs and individuals to face and recover from disaster.
BLOCKS is Building Links between Offices of emergency management, Childcare, and the community for Kids Safety and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
We believe that children are the future. We focus on our emergency management training to help provide childcare providers and the children they care for with the best chance we can, to get through, and recover from, disaster.
We provide a variety of programs designed to meet our goal of keeping children safe. Some of the things we do include....
Provide disaster preparedness workshops to children and their parents
Train and provide childcare providers with resources so they are better prepared for disaster
Teach children what to do "just in case"
Engage with business continuity and emergency management communities to help include childcare needs in disaster planning and recovery efforts
