Disaster Tips Sheets for Faith Community Partners

In October 2012, the National Disaster Interfaiths Network launched Be A Ready Congregation Partner. Key to this resource are the NDIN "Disaster Tip Sheets for Faith Community Partners." Each Tip Sheet offers government, non-profit or other faith-based organizations all-hazards best practices and resource links about disaster mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery – specifically Sheltering and Mass Care guidelines.

A free resource, the guidelines within the Tip Sheets are provided to inform religious literacy, cultural competency and reasonable religious accommodation mandates for U.S. Mass Care providers, and to assist staff and volunteers in competently meeting the needs of Muslims during disaster response or recovery operations—whether at a government or private shelter, or a shelter in house of worship or other religious facility.
