Diocesan Disaster Preparedness & Response Committee Report
Submitted by: Elaine Vallecillo-Miller, Interim Diocesan Disaster Preparedness Coordinator
Submitted to: the 174th Diocesan Convention
This Committee is collaborating with Mark Dibelka, the Missioner for Disaster Resilience, for the Diocese of Northern California, with a social justice outreach effort, called Project ReStart. It is being kick-off at the Annual Convention whereby information will be distributed in the exhibitor hall. Mark has been a wonderful resource for our committee since his position is partly funded by the Episcopal Relief and Development as well as by his Diocese.
Free disaster-related virtual classes offered by Prepare U Emergency Training and Bay Area Training and Exercise Program (BATEP) are posted in the DioCal Newsletter so that congregational disaster coordinators can take advantage of them.
