Lighthouses help in two important ways – before and during an emergency.
Before: Lighthouses help educate their congregations on the essentials of emergency preparedness, including the features and advantages of the Lighthouse Program. Such education places the community in a better position to help each other during emergencies.
During: Lighthouses act as safe havens during emergencies.
Every lighthouse facility has a dedicated team of volunteers that is prepared to welcome and support you to the best of their abilities during a citywide emergency.
Every lighthouse will offer you essential relief such as refuge and drinking water during times of community-wide crisis. Certain lighthouses, depending on their abilities and resources, may also provide food and first aid.
Each participating faith-based facility has identified a special area within its complex that will serve as a community safe place during an emergency.
