Timely and relevant information regarding disaster preparedness and safety measures.
Catholic Charities disaster services program offers a resource for parish communities in times of preparedness as well as recovery. While not considered a first responder, Catholic Charities assists parishes to connect with state and community wide resources in times of disaster. In preparation for disaster response, Catholic Charities assists parishes and volunteer Parish Disaster Coordinators by providing training on community and county resources, and assisting with the development of Parish Disaster Plans.
