A VERY WARM WELCOME!

In his book 'The Mark of the Christian', Francis Schaeffer says, "Christians have not always presented a pretty picture to the world.  Too often they have failed to show the beauty of love, the beauty of Christ, the holiness of God.  And the world has turned away.  Is there then no way to make the world look again-this time at true Christianity?"
 
What is the 'MARK' of a Christian?

'A new command I give you:  LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.' John 13:34-35

Being prepared for any disaster, demonstrating the love of Christ, is our mission. Bridges of Love promotes community resilience; connecting people, churches, and various networks through coordination, resources, and Community Emergency Response Team  training.

Follower's of Jesus Christ have been given the double mandate of both loving God and our neighbour. Bridges of Love's Faith Emergency Preparedness Initiative (FEPI) provides opportunities and opens doors, for the local church to shine, in the community in which it is found. 

Building a bridge of love to our community can take many forms and as with any bridge design, the architecture can be quite varied.  Thanks to Dr. Tim Foggin, Bridges of Love's connecting bridge, Emergency/Pandemic Preparedness, is a vehicle to display Christ's love, providing opportunities for the church to be ready to care for the community during times of disaster. "Love is ACTION"

We are indeed grateful to the Faith Emergency Preparedness Initiative (FEPI) Advisory Council who in our start-up phase, gave tangible proof  that collaboration across various sectors/communities, through government and church denominations, provides a greater impact for community resilience.

COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (CERT)
NEIGHBOURS HELPING NEIGHBOURS



Networks of prepared individuals and local agencies that collaborate effectively reduce dependence on municipal services and mitigate the damage caused by large scale events. 

After a disaster, people want to help.  Bridges of Love's Community Emergency Response Team training, assures a SAFE neighbours helping neighbours response. CERT is a grass-roots strategy that is both practical and realistic; strengthening community safety and preparedness, through increased civic participation.

If the disaster is wide spread, only preparedness and training of the local community will provide security, until first responders arrive on the scene.
