New Online Course: Religious and Cultural Literacy and Competency in Disaster

FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute is offering a new self-paced, independent study course 505, Religious and Cultural Literacy and Competency in Disaster. This course explores how religious and cultural communities are engaged during disasters, how religious and cultural diversity and practice is protected by law, and how religious and cultural diversity can strengthen emergency management capabilities. It provides emergency management professionals and faith and community leaders active in disaster with literacy and competency tools to engage religious and cultural groups both pre- and post-disaster. The course also includes 14 downloadable tip sheets that highlight engagement best practices and guidelines for partnering with diverse religious communities.

The course is open to the general public and was developed to support partnerships between the first responders and faith-based and community organizations to more effectively serve disaster survivors in their time of need.
