Are You Prepared for an Emergency?

 

Many of the trainings and workshops you may have attended were geared towards a catastrophic event but what would you do if your business or home was threatened by a fire or other type of event that could force you to evacuate at a moments notice? Would you know what to bring with you? Who do I contact? How do I contact them? The basic question is Are you prepared? We will answer these questions and many more.

Faithful Response has created a number of preparedness brochures and interactive workshops, using an all hazards approach to help you better prepare your family, business, house of worship and school.
