LFCS recognizes that awareness and preparedness are the keys to building more resilient communities.
With that in mind, LFCS offers a wealth of congregational and community-based trainings that can be scheduled upon request. In addition, our Director of Disaster Services is a registered Missouri Disaster Case Management trainer.
Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) Trainings
2015 Regional Faith-Based Disaster Workshops
The Governor’s Faith-Based and Community Service Partnership for Disaster Recovery invites faith organization leaders, emergency management directors, local public health agency (LPHA) representatives, Community Organizations Active in Disasters (COAD) partners, and other community members to attend one of the nine regional workshops in May and June.
Because faith-based organizations face unique challenges in helping their communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, The Partnership, along with the Public Health Emergency Preparedness program has put together a program that will provide insightful and practical advice to help with that mission. We hope you can participate.
These events are provided free of cost to participants. All events are from 1-5 p.m. For more information please download the workshop flyer below.
