Emergency Readiness Committee

The purpose of the Emergency Readiness Committee (ERC) is to administer the emergency readiness procedure for emergencies that endanger the health of people on the Chapel property and emergencies that endanger the welfare of the Chapel property.

Emergency planning is an ongoing process that plans for disasters caused by both nature and humans and considers all four phases of disasters:

  1. Prevention – measures to reduce or eliminate the risk to life and property
  2. Preparedness – planning for the worst-case scenario
  3. Response – steps to take during a disaster
  4. Recovery – restoring ministry operations after a disaster
