The good folks at Crossroads in Valley, NS have graciously agreed to host our Fall Super Cluster again this year. And once again, we are providing lunch at no cost to participants. Here is the topic and description for this Super Cluster:
None of us knows when we, or we and our churches, will be suddenly called on to respond to some form of disaster in our community. It’s not something we like to think about, but it is something we better be preparing for. This Super Cluster will feature input from a few different guests speaking from different perspectives, followed by some good roundtable time. Our hope is that we can all go away with a better sense of what we can do when (not if) disaster does happen in our backyard.
This exciting day will involve the participation of some excellent authorities on the issue including:
Robert Levine, Emergency Coordinator for Truro, Stewiacke & Colchester County
Jim Shield, former officer with the RCMP and current survivor of PTSD
Merle Doherty, Rapid Response Team Manager with the BGEA
Stephen Joudry, Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Response
*Note also that Samaritan's Purse will be bringing their 53 foot Disaster Reponse Trailer down from Moncton to have onsite for the day for people to walk through and have a 'hands-on' for the day.
