Disaster ready child-care

DENVER (AP) - Colorado State University is leading a study on whether child-care centers in the state are prepared for disasters.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Monday it is funding the two-year study with a $30,000 grant. FEMA says it's the first of its kind in the nation.

Lori Peek of the Center for Disaster and Risk Analysis at CSU says the state has more than 340,000 children up to 5 years old, and at any given time most of them are in a licensed child-care center or at a home child-care setting.
