FEPI & Crosswalk
The Faith Emergency Preparedness Initiative (FEPI) is a network of churches dedicated to emergency preparedness and recovery. By employing their vast resources, expertise, and generosity, we have created a system for responding to emergencies and disasters when they happen, and supporting communities when they need it most. Crosswalk is a framework for connecting community members with churches, including FEPI members, to request aid.
Bridges of Love manages training, logistics, and operations for Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs). CERT-trained community members are prepared to be mustered by the community in times of need, able to be the first responders on the scene and get things under control while preparing for the arrival of emergency services. CERT members are largely everyday people, trained in how to handle various emergency and disaster situations.
