Speaking of Sheltering

Posted by: admin

King County offers Faith Based
Emergency Preparedness Planning

As Hub Captains, we’ve been talking about how to engage our local churches, temples, and mosques in thinking about community sheltering needs in the event of a major disaster. This is for the short term, while the official government response is being put into place. One step on that path is to make sure the faith based organizations have thought about their own preparedness locations, for their facilities and their congregations. Here is an opportunity in March to help them take that first step:
