Praise & Preparedness LogoPraise & Preparedness

Praise & Preparedness is an initiative launched by the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency. It encourages faith-based organizations statewide to promote the message of emergency preparedness and readiness before disaster strikes.  It will not only promote individual preparedness, but preparedness as a house of worship family.

The initiative enables congregations to receive information on how to make sure their facility is safe, how members can practice preparedness in their homes, and how their house of worship can get involved in disaster relief efforts in their community.

Beneficial resources can be located and downloaded in the “Tools” portion of the Praise & Preparedness website to aid in achieving the goal of becoming a Praise & Preparedness partner with GEMA/HS.

Learn more about the partnership program and requirements towards becoming a partner under the section labeled “Partnership.” Each section contains pertinent information towards becoming more prepared for the next disaster that could hit your house of worship. From the Emergency Operations Plan under the “Facilities” section to the Emergency Supply kit under “Congregation,” we hope you find what you looking for in order to be ready.

If you have any questions or would like more information about Praise & Preparedness, send a message to praise@gema.ga.gov.​
