Chin, K., Tan, P., Simmons, T., et al. (2020). A Mixed-Method Analysis: Disaster Preparedness of Families with Children with Access and Functional Needs. (Free registration required) American Journal of Disaster Medicine 15(3):187-197.
This small study evaluated “challenges to disaster preparedness of families with children with access and functional needs (CAFN),” and found that preparedness among these families is low, as evidenced by a lack of disaster kits, medical plans for children, and written communications plans. The authors recommend that parents, schools, healthcare providers, and communities collaborate to improve preparedness in CAFN.
