After a large scale disaster, local governments do not have the capacity to manage the over-whelming needs of an entire community. With dependence on municipal services, residents and families are exposed to long-term recovery efforts.
Networks of prepared individuals and local agencies that collaborage effectively reduce dependence on municipal services and mitigate the damage caused by large scale events.
After a disaster, people want to help. Bridges of \love's Community Emergency Response Team training, assures a SAFE neighbours helping neighbours response.
CERT is a grass-roots strategy that is both practical and realistic; strengthening community safety and preparedness, through increased civic participation. We cannot take chances waiting for first responders! If the disaster is wide spread enough, only strengths of the local community will provide security, until first responders arrive.
Bridges of Love promotes community resilience; connecting people, churches, and various networks through coordination, resources, and training.
