Pandemic Preparedness for Faith-Based Organizations
These resources are available to help local leaders teach pandemic preparedness for their community’s faith-based organizations. No training or fee is required to use the materials. The Extension Disaster Education Network encourages that the resources be used for local planning.
The materials are appropriate to accommodate churches, congregations, synagogues, mosques and other places of worship. Please adapt the information to meet your needs.
A future goal is to provide examples of completed pandemic preparedness plans by a variety of faith-based organizations. If you have a completed plan you’d be willing to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
