The York River District Disaster Response and Recovery Team is preparing for a disaster. Not that they are looking for a disaster, they are just preparing for this unwelcome guest. Moreover, they would like to assist local congregations to also prepare themselves for disaster. Knowledge and best practices are evolving, so be sure to look over the resources, plan, and train to the plan regularly.

The resources below link to the Conference website and to Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD). It is important to understand both the Conference Disaster response and VOAD response expectations. The church leadership has agreed, on our behalf, on these guidelines we are ALL to follow.
