EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS RESOURCES for CONGREGATIONS & FAMILIES 

From large-scale natural disasters to localized acts of human violence, these events can devastate our communities and overwhelm our resources. Though we cannot plan for or prevent every possible outcome, we can take precautions that minimize the impact of a disaster on our congregations and, in turn, be prepared to serve the community in the midst of a traumatic event. Preparedness is good stewardship, and it builds community resilience. 

All congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas are encouraged to create a written emergency plan as soon as possible.

Families and individuals would be wise to create a plan before it's needed.

Help survivors of Hurricane Laura. Church members are vital participants and leaders in storm recovery.
