Ala. tops child safety list

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A new report is putting Alabama at the top of the list when it comes to protecting children from disasters.

The report was released by Save the Children.

Called "The Disaster Decade: Lessons Unlearned for the United States" because of a ten year assault on the U.S. by natural and manmade disasters, Alabama met all four minimum standards to keep schools and child-care facilities ready in the event of an emergency.

Alabama was one of just six states to meet all four standards.

The report's standards include: evacuation and relocation, reunification, plans for special needs children and a multi-hazard plan for schools.

Eleven states failed to meet just one of the goals.
