When Disasters Happen
When bad disasters happen to good congregations, will they be ready? The April 16, 2011, tornados struck Wake County on a Saturday afternoon, affecting 2400 residences as well as commercial and institutional buildings.
What if they had struck on Sunday morning?Imagine power and phone lines down, your parking lot blocked by downed trees, gas lines broken, and cell towers overwhelmed. Suppose there were injuries and emergency responders were unable to reach you. Imagine that you had to care for yourself and each other for hours or days.
Do you have a plan?Floods, tornados, hurricanes, fires, active shooters and acts of terrorism require immediate action.
Do you have a plan?These events also involve long-term recovery of the surrounding community.
Do you have a plan?This workshop will prepare you to develop a response plan to protect your buildings and grounds and a plan to care for your members before, during, and after the disaster strikes. You will learn how to develop an inventory of the skills and talents of your members to assist the congregation and the community. You will receive resource materials to create your unique plan.
