October 13, 2011
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has released Emergency Planning for Juvenile Justice Residential Facilities.
This guide describes how facilities can ensure that youth receive the supports and services they require during the disruptions that emergencies inevitably cause. It is the first comprehensive planning guide to address the specific needs of children, youth, and families involved in the justice system during an emergency. The document provides step-by-step guidance to help ensure the efficient continuation of operations during an emergency, the reduction of risk to the physical plant, and the safety and well-being of the youth and staff who live and work in the nation's juvenile justice residential facilities.
