What Has CiRCLe M Been Up To?
2015 - Looking Back Over the Last 5+ Years...
Church AND Community - Crisis Response Training
CiRCLe M's training engages rural churches in crisis preparedness planning and action.
In May 2014, emergency measures organizations and local churches from nine rural communities participated in CiRCLe M's on-line training for crisis preparedness. In Fall 2014, the communities began taking what they learned into their communities.
CiRCLe M is currently conducting follow-up visits to the communities.
Our hope is...
....the communities will strengthen their 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. more
