Disaster Management Planning
A program to help congregations plan for potential incidents, provide direction during crises, and foster cooperation in recovery.


Diocesan Disaster Management Coordinator:  Dr. Bill King, ddc@diosova.org

The central focus of the diocesan disaster management program is assisting congregations to develop and maintain an All-Hazard Disaster Management Plan (AHDMP).  This AHDMP will enable congregations to evaluate their infrastructure, identify threats, and assess specific vulnerabilities, and develop a plan to address them.

The Diocesan Disaster Management Coordinator, Dr. Bill King, will meet with your disaster management team to train them to develop a plan for your church. You should anticipate an eight-hour training session.

For additional information and to schedule a training, contact Dr. Bill King at 757-572-3853 (cell) or 804-479-3301 (home), or ddc@diosova.org

To obtain documentation and training materials contact Diocesan Communications Officer Ann Turner at 757-213-3388 or aturner@diosova.org.
