This tip sheet discusses how religious leaders can adapt their place of worship to be used as a shelter, service center, warehouse, or volunteer staging area during disaster response and recovery.

It presents tips for preparedness, response, and recovery, as well as listing important considerations and organizations to work with in using religious facilities for particular purposes after a disaster (for example, a respite center for workers or a cooling center for heat emergencies).
