Season of Resilience
September is Disaster Preparedness month and your Season of Resilience.
Now is a better time than ever to prepare – Join us!
A Season of Resilience
Resilience is elasticity. In the event of a disaster, are you able to bounce back? Let’s get prepared. We invite you to use A Season of Resilience resource, to help you increase your ability to recover from any kind of hazard, whether it’s a power outage or a category 5 hurricane. Throughout the month of September, take small steps towards becoming more resilient by watching, listening and learning about disaster preparedness. Download A Season of Resilience bulletin inserts and participate as an individual, household or as a faith community.
Coupled with your resource, throughout the month of September, we are sharing disaster preparedness tips on social media using the hashtag #SeasonofResilience and #EpiscoPrep. Follow along and share your preparedness tips and stories on social media, and tag us @EpiscopalRelief on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags. Together, we can spread awareness across the church and our extended communities.
A Season of Resilience
Lasting for a five-week period, A Season of Resilience curriculum is a series of worship inserts that will help you take steps to prepare for disasters and put together an emergency kit. Don’t worry if you can’t do all of the suggested activities all at once! Even having a few extra items will make a big difference in improving your safety and comfort in the event of a disaster. When we are prepared, we’re in a better position to help our neighbors after a disaster. Download
Feeling prepared for a situation – be it a job interview, a new baby or a sudden disaster – not only helps us experience less fear and anxiety, but can actually improve how things go. The three most important things you can do to prepare for a disaster are to make a plan, be informed and get a kit. Episcopal Relief & Development’s US Disaster Program offers a variety of resources to help you, your loved ones, your church and your community to prepare for and respond to disasters that may occur.
