Disaster Tip Sheets for Religious Leaders
On August 8, 2007, a set of fifteen disaster tip sheets was released for New York City religious leaders. Each one- to four-page tip sheet provides a basic orientation to important information and resources about disaster readiness, response, and recovery issues of key importance to the clergy and religious leaders of New York City's houses of worship and faith communities.
Pastors and religious leaders are the first source of communication and leadership in the houses of worship, neighborhoods, and faith communities where they serve.These tip sheets are a free resource to provide our religious leaders with a basic orientation to the skills and tools they will need in times of crisis. They are to be used for mitigation education and preparedness training orientation or as a quick reference in times of crisis. If you are interested in more information, please see www.NYDIS.org.
The Tip Sheets can be downloaded below in PDF format. Please share them those who will benefit from this useful information. If the material is quoted or duplicated in other resources, please acknowledge the source.
