Church AND Community - Crisis Response Training

CiRCLe M's training engages rural churches in crisis preparedness planning and action.

Emergency measures organizations and local churches from nine rural communities participated in CiRCLe M's on-line training for crisis preparedness.
Our hope is...

....the participants will take what they learned and will work with others in their communities to strengthen local emergency plans... so that the gifts of the church will be part of those plans... and be put to good use during times of great need.
