In the unlikely event of a disaster such as a fire, severe storm, or earthquake, it is critical to have a plan in place that everyone is familiar with. Wee Ones Disaster Plan consists of two parts, preparedness and procedures during a disaster. Please read this section carefully so you will know what we are doing to keep your child safe and well cared for in the unfortunate event of a disaster.
Disaster Preparedness - We have prepared a Disaster Supplies Kit stocked with essential items needed in the event of a disaster based on guidelines from the American Red Cross. This kit is stocked with a three day supply of non-perishable food, water, formula, diapers, first aid supplies and radio, cooking utensils and tools, bedding, and sanitation items. In the event of a disaster, this kit would have the necessary items to meet our basis needs. On a monthly basis, we practice evacuating the house in the event of a fire. Periodically, we practice gathering together to stop, cover, and hold. With babies this usually means getting under a table or gathering in a doorway.
During A Disaster - The safety of your child is my highest priority. During a disaster, the following procedures are followed.
Evacuate - In the event of a fire, children are evacuated immediately. We will take them to a neighbor’s house to call 911 and contact you. In the event of an earthquake, we will stop, cover, and hold until the shaking stops. A visual inspection of the house will be made to determine if it is safe to stay inside.
Safe Alternate Location - If the house is undamaged and safe to occupy after an earthquake, we will stay there. If the house is unsafe to be in due to structural damage, we will evacuate to Franklin Elementary School - 1400 South Lawrence. Franklin Elementary is located 2 blocks west of our location on South 14th Street.
Out Of Area Phone Contact - After an earthquake it is common for local phone service to be disrupted. Our out of area phone contact are, Linda and Gary Johnson. They live in Silverdale Washington, and their phone numbers are (work 360 698-7556) home 360 698-2427) we will make every effort to maintain ongoing contact with them to relay information.
Release Of Your Child - We will only release your child to you, the parents, and anyone else that you authorize to pick up on your Enrollment Application.
