Connecting Neighbors Training
October 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
This emergency preparedness training through UMCOR has three areas of focus – personal and home readiness, church readiness, and readiness to serve your neighbors in case of an emergency. This workshop is being taught by Wendy Riddle and David C. Riddle.
Lunch will be provided.
Disaster Ready Congregations
This workshop has the goal of inspiring congregations and communities to be better able to minimize disaster-caused harm to people and property and to respond to our neighbors in helpful, cooperative and caring ways on behalf of the church and in the spirit of Jesus Christ.
This workshop incorporates knowledge and experience gleaned over many years by dedicated volunteers who have served their neighbors on behalf of the church. Rich information has also been included from other organizations and community partners – most notably the American Red Cross, National Disaster Interfaith Network, and FEMA. UMCOR is grateful to these partners for providing public access to helpful resources.
Online pre-registration is required. A $10 workshop fee includes all materials, snacks and lunch. Deadline for registration is Friday, September 27.
