The Template Toolkit includes print, website, audio, video, and multimedia materials that disaster behavioral health response programs can use to provide outreach, psycho-education, and recovery news for disaster survivors. Many of the links contain sample materials and online tools that have been used in previous disaster situations across the country. The templates can also be adapted for future use as desired. 
Lost Person Finder 
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC)
  • The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children opened in 1984 to serve as the nation’s clearinghouse on issues related to missing and sexually exploited children. Today NCMEC is authorized by Congress to perform 19 programs and services to assist law enforcement, families and the professionals who serve them.
  • National Emergency Child Locator Center (NECLC)

    • The National Emergency Child Locator Center is operated by NCMEC and activated during Presidentially-declared disasters. Its mission is to assist in reunifying children separated from their parents or legal guardians in the aftermath of a disaster.
  • Unaccompanied Minors Registry (UMR)
    • The UMR serves as a centralized and protected database where information pertaining to unaccompanied minors can be stored. It supports the ability to collect, store, report, and act on information related to children missing or lost as a result of a disaster.
National Emergency Family Registry and Locator System (NEFRLS) 
  • NEFRLS is a nationally-accessible system that facilitates the reunification of families separated or displaced by a disaster that is activated when requested by a state following a Presidentially-declared disaster.  It allows adults who have been displaced from their homes or pre-incident locations to voluntarily register and share specific information about their post-disaster well-being or location with designated family members.  Family members and friends may search the database for a record created by a displaced individual. 
National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)
  • The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) is a national centralized repository and resource center for missing persons and unidentified decedent records. NamUs is a free online system that can be searched by medical examiners, coroners, law enforcement officials and the general public from all over the country in hopes of resolving these cases.
  • This program is a project of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
Reunification School Emergency Video
  • This video was created by Adams 14 School District to provide information and instructions to parents on what to do during a school emergency. Parents are reminded that they should not come to the school during an emergency, but should wait for instructions on how to be reunited with their students.
  • The video uses Adams 14 procedures, but is general enough to apply for other schools.
