Keeping our Churches Safe from Disaster and Violence

The Diocese of Western North Carolina is committed to providing our parishes and institutions with the resources necessary in order to prepare for, respond to, and recover from any disaster that is a result of nature, industry, technology, or intention.

 

In the event of a disaster, affected congregations and regions are encouraged to contact the Canon to the Ordinary who will be available to assist with any immediate diocesan support and coordinate with Episcopal Relief and Development.

 

These resources are here to help you bring emergency readiness to your congregation and are adaptable to the size of your congregation.
