Description: In this presentation, the author discusses research on the following questions: How prone to special risks are children (18 years and younger) in times of disaster? How is this further exacerbated with children who are classified as juvenile delinquents? How prepared is the juvenile justice system for disasters? What are the implications of being underprepared? What are the resources available for juvenile delinquents in times of disaster? Research will include interviews and questionnaires with staff in juvenile delinquent facilities.
