Children are the most vulnerable during disasters, and this bipartisan bill would ensure that Homeland Security & FEMA receive feedback from experts related to their protection that could be incorporated into agency disaster planning.
While this bill is well-intended and bipartisan, children will always be among the most vulnerable during disasters no matter how much their needs are accounted for in planning. Besides, DHS is already developing these plans.
