Hurricane hazards come in many forms: storm surge, high winds, tornadoes, and flooding. This means it is important for your congregation to have a plan that includes all of these hazards. The first step is to have an emergency preparedness team which includes the Rector, the Senior Warden, the Junior Warden, the Parish Administrator and other property-minded parishioners.
