Disaster Preparation and Assistance Commission

The St. Augustine Disaster Preparation and Assistance Commission (SAPDAC) is authorized to take such measures as may be necessary to respond to a disaster occurring within the bounds of the presbytery, including applications for emergency funding (including longer term recovery funding) through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). The work includes: developing communication chains within the presbytery and with the Florida Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Network; developing an “immediate response protocol”; providing churches with information that will enable them to develop their own emergency response plans; and providing resources for recovery work after an incident.
