Disaster Hits Management

There are a number of devastating events that, should they occur, would create serious problems for your ministry.  These events can include floods, tornados, or other natural disasters. It is never too late to get prepared, and the first step is to build a disaster kit for you and your ministry.

We also recommend that everyone review their church insurance program, specifically your church insurance, to make sure that you have the right coverage in the event of a disaster.

A basic emergency kit should include the following:

  • Three day supply of food and water
  • Medications
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Flashlight
  • Battery
  • Basic tools
  • Solar power source for smart phone
  • Dust masks for every family member
  • First aid kit

Other items to consider

  • Create a personal backpack for each staff member
  • Have a pre-determined meeting place if separated from others
  • Would you need to build a shelter? Having plastic sheeting might help

Basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones may be cut off for days, a week, or longer. Your supply kit should contain items to help you manage during these outages.
