Faith-based Organizations Outreach for IRAA Emergency Preparedness

The goal of this project is to protect lives, to minimize physical/psychological trauma from disasters, and to reduce peak demand on EMDs/First Responders by developing new capacity for IRAA emergency resilience by building on and extending previous work achieved by the Western Mass IRAA Preparedness Project to include faith-based and cultural centers. This project advances the mission of the DHS Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives: “To build resilient communities among faith-based and community organizations.” WRHSAC has developed this project through several phases. More recent phases of the project have focused on utilizing faith based organizations to build a Rest Center network in Western Massachusetts. Click here for more information.
