HHS Child and Adolescent Health Emergency Planning Toolkit

Red ambulance at a city street. Blurred motion. Urgency. Emergency. 

The HHS Child and Adolescent Health Emergency Planning Toolkit addresses the needs of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) in emergency preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation, and community resilience activities. As a companion to the HHS Maternal-Child Health (MCH) Emergency Planning Toolkit, this toolkit aligns with ongoing HHS objectives to ensure health equity for all children, adolescents, and CYSHCN and their families/caregivers to ensure access to high-quality care, services, and support across the emergency management cycle.

The toolkit is intended for health care, public health, and social services providers serving CYSHCN and their families/caregivers. The toolkit contains approaches, resources, and practices to help providers coordinate and integrate systems of care for CYSHCN and their families/caregivers.
