FEMA IS 505 Tip Sheet: Faith Community Engagement Resources & Tools

Building religious literacy and competency is an ongoing process, with a wealth of both self-directed study resources and classroom trainings available. A good starting point is taking a religious literacy self-assessment. From there proceed with self-directed study with a focus on the religious traditions you may work with or care for in crisis settings. These educational resources and field tools are a great starting point. There is also a list of smartphone apps available for use in the field when scheduling meetings and for locating culturally-appropriate food vendors.
