Supporting Communities in Times of Emergency
Disasters occur unexpectedly all over the world. To help neighbors cope in difficult circumstances, the World Mission Society Church of God provides relief, being committed to giving aid in times of trouble and uncertainty.
Church of God volunteers have participated in various disaster preparedness educations such as community emergency response team (CERT) training and emergency preparedness training. Moreover, to facilitate national and international disaster relief efforts, the Church of God has worked with the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (UN CERF), the National Guard, and various emergency relief departments.
About 1,200 church members became part of a certified community emergency response team (CERT) after attending a daylong training program in Bergen County, NJ.
Following the tragic West Virginia flooding, hundreds of volunteers from throughout the East Coast went to help with cleanup efforts.
The Church of God held a united New England Emergency Preparedness Training. Representatives from the Westborough Police and Fire Departments trained attendees on how to respond to emergency situations.
