Save the Children has released its 2012 National Report Card on Protecting Children During Disasters. This annual publication tracks the progress of states in planning for a disaster that involves children. According to the report, much progress has been made since tracking started in 2008. Nevertheless, many states are still woefully unprepared. The report features a table of the four types of disaster plans for children that states should have. These plans include an Evacuation/Relocation Plan, a Family-Child Reunification Plan, a Children with Special Needs Plan, and a K–12 Multiple Disaster Plan.
