Schools Lack Emergency Plans: Study

Florida is one of 28 states across the country where schools and childcare centers have inadequate safety plans in place for emergencies, the Associated Pressreports. According to a report from Save the Children, only 22 states have four basic plans that help keep children safe and reunite them with their parents. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
