Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) staff frequently serve as subject matter experts in emergency preparedness, response and recovery (EPRR). Related job duties typically include emergency preparedness plan reviews for child care programs, emergency preparedness training delivery, distribution of emergency supplies, and support to the child care workforce following a disaster. These responsibilities are typically added to another role within CCR&R and are often not listed in a job description. Many CCR&R staff had no experience or training in emergency preparedness, response and recovery before taking on the role. In many CCR&R organizations, emergency preparedness, response and recovery is a role that surfaces just after a disaster occurs and may be short-term. In other instances, usually driven by grant fund availability, emergency preparedness work is prioritized for a defined period of time, but not always sustained or embedded in ongoing service delivery.
