Disaster Preparedness
As people of faith, are we prepared to be the caring hands of Jesus during a disaster, extended to those who are afraid, in need of shelter, in need of hope? As part of its efforts to engage followers of Jesus to work together for community transformation, Disaster & Emergency Response (DER) is collaborating with public and private agencies to mobilize people of faith, as well as churches, to become part of a community-wide strategy for disaster preparedness.

Through the shared vision of private donors and many volunteers, DER is able to provide this service to our community at no cost to you.  Join us to receive educational material including local resources that can help you prepare, disaster planning resources for church leaders, and handouts for church members.
