Church Preparedness for Disaster Relief


October 12, 2016

A church must plan how it will respond to disasters, large and small, within the church and in the community. Plans need to be well developed and discussed by the church leaders and shared with the members. Families and individuals within the congregation need to participate in training to understand their role. A community action plan also needs to be developed for the churches response within the greater community of partners.

This manual will assist church to:
• prepare for disaster by developing strategies for preparedness
• create plans for response activity within the church and community
• develop training to prepare and respond to disaster
