Adventist Disaster Response
Whatever the disaster, it is important to be prepared to take care of yourself for a period of time. First responders have a list of priorities, and residential neighborhoods are not high on that list. The key to disaster preparedness is to plan, prepare and practice. See the resources below for advice on how to be prepared for any disaster.

As the United States experiences disasters with increasing frequency and severity, we also want to reach out to those who have been affected to offer them hope, comfort and help. Click on the link below to offer your services.
