Does your church staff and congregation know what to expect during the first 48 hours following a major disaster? Does your congregation understand the disaster response role and capacity of government and non-profit agencies?
Is your church and your congregation prepared to be self-sufficient for up to seven days if a major earthquake, flood or fire were to limit outside help following an event? Are your congregants trained to assist others in the community?
Is your staff and lay leadership prepared to provide spiritual and emotional care to your congregation and the community when a human-caused trauma or natural disaster impacts the city?
