January 1, 2009

The Head Start Emergency Preparedness Manual (2009) is a resource to support Head Start programs as
administrators and staff plan for emergencies and implement emergency preparedness plans. There is
information on the four phases of an emergency (i.e., Planning, Impact, Relief, and Recovery), the
Practice-Review-Revise Cycle, and how to plan and prepare for specific emergency situations. Head
Start program planning teams can use the information and tools included in this Manual to develop or
revise their emergency preparedness plans.
