This tip sheet is designed to guide religious leaders as they develop disaster plans and move themselves and their congregations through preparedness, immediate response, and short- and long-term recovery. Based on hurricane planning, preparedness, response, and recovery, this tip sheet can be used by religious leaders to prepare for and respond to any type of disaster.

For each disaster phase, the tip sheet identifies steps to be taken by emergency management, public health, and first response agencies, and those to be taken by religious leaders.
