Ready for Anything: A Disaster Planning Manual for Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs

Published: July 27, 2012

Across the country, thousands each year are affected by large-scale disasters, from wildfires to floods to hurricanes. Disasters can also occur on a smaller scale, caused by everyday events such as power outages, kitchen fires, or burst water mains. While most disasters are impossible to predict, you can plan for them and reduce disruptions in your services to youth and families.

It includes worksheets and checklists to guide you step by step through the process of creating an emergency-preparedness plan for your youth-serving agency.
