It's not a matter of if disaster strikes, but when. And when it does, will you be ready? Faith-Based Organizations are not immune from emergencies and disasters. Therefore, it is important to take the time to develop plans ahead of time. Each Faith-Based Organization should have an emergency response plan for common emergencies like fire, severe weather and medical emergencies, a business continuity plan to aid in recovering from a major disaster and an outreach plan to aid the community in the aftermath of a disaster.
By taking some simple steps, you can prepare your "House of Worship" for emergencies.
