School children practice emergency procedures for fires, tornados, and earthquakes. Practicing for such emergencies expedites immediate action and helps students and staff remain calm should an actual emergency occur.
Have you ever wondered if your church is prepared to handle an emergency?
Most likely, your local church does not have an emergency plan or corresponding procedures. In this day and age, especially with the rise of domestic terrorism; preparedness and prevention is key.
DAJ Consulting has created a free Preparedness Checklist to help churches and places of worship gauge their emergency preparedness. Feel free to print the checklist and give it to your pastor or clergy. You may also forward this post to their attention.
Being prepared for emergencies does not mean doubting God; it simply means taking responsibility for the people in our care at all times.
Acts 20:28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. NIV
