We prayed to our God...and posted a guard. (Nehemiah 4:9)
The name of the LORD is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe. (Proverbs 18:10)
St. Michael the Archangel....Protect Us.

The EMC may form sub-committees, working groups, teams, etc., as appropriate, to assist in the overall mission of the committee. Examples include: Safety Team, Medical Response Team, Tropical Weather Team, Parish Festival Safety Team, etc.
The Emergency Management Committee shall appoint/elect, at a minimum, a Chairperson (Emergency Management Coordinator), Vice-Chairperson (Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator) and Secretary/Recorder.
