Disasters, Emergency and Health Safety

At Adventist Risk Management, Inc,. we are committed to give you the best information on disaster preparedness to protect you, your school, your family, your church and your organization.

The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other emergency. We must all have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes.

Adventist Risk Management, Inc., has developed a new disaster response page on our Web site. This page contains articles, press releases, and links to other resources that address disaster preparedness issues from a risk management perspective. We hope you will find this material invaluable as you seek to protect the properties in your care. We will continually update this page with new information as it becomes available.
