ICCCC Disaster Preparedness Committee
(brown bag lunch meeting, drinks provided)
Thursday, August 2nd at 11:30 am
Raine Room at Walnut Creek United Methodist Church
1543 Sunnyvale Ave., WC (Church Office entrance)

Each congregation is encouraged to have an Emergency Preparedness Liaison with the Disaster Preparedness Committee where we can plan for future disaster relief together.  Does your congregation have a Disaster Plan?  Will you be able to care for all of your members?  Will you also be able to help those who live near your congregation?  Come meet with others preparing their congregational plans.  Drinks are provided.  Please bring your own lunch.

We noticed that some congregations in Marin and SF were able to help during the North Bay Wildfires.  Such fires are the “New Normal” in our extended drought and climate change.  We are also at risk of earthquakes sometime in the next decade.  If your congregations isn’t prepared, it won’t be able to be a part of the larger system of disaster relief.
