Tip of the day

Emergency Preparedness Tip of the week--

Talk with your house of worship about how they might be of help to those in need in the event of an emergency.  Here are some ideas:

  • Do they have a food pantry that could offer food to someone in need?
  • Do  they have access to first aid supplies?
  • Is there a list of people within your church/synagogue who are trained in first aid or emergency response?
  • Do you have access to cots if you are needed to house people overnight?
  • Do you have a clothing closet or a phone chain where supplies can be gathered for someone who has just had a house fire?
  • Is your pastor or rabbi trained in emergency response counseling?
