Establishing Long-term Solutions

During ongoing humanitarian crises, FDR remains steadfast with disaster relief services that survivors desperately need to rebuild.

HURRICANE IAN

Foursquare Disaster Relief is responding to the Category 4 hurricane that hit the West Coast of Florida. Massive damage from 140 MPH winds and floodwaters as high as eight feet have devastated areas. We have activated our network of regional partners to respond to the needs of people in need.

Our main bases of operation have been in the Ft. Myers area with Mission Community Church and several Foursquare churches in the greater Orlando area. Our area and regional pastors have been critical in helping us mobilize more churches to be relief hubs and “On Mission Together," reaching out with compassion and love to those in need.

Distributions of food, water, and other relief supplies have been distributed daily through our local churches and their partners. Approximately 20 semi-truck loads have been mobilized and distributed to meet immediate needs. Generators, hygiene supplies, fuel, paper goods, and so much more have been given out to help alleviate the suffering of families.

All of this is done by the local church and our Foursquare Disaster Relief responders, with spiritual and emotional care, seeing people come to Christ as a result of the physical love and care being given.

Semi-loads of immediately needed food and water are being sent and distributed as fast as they arrive to bless and provide for the community.

Disaster Relief Training

Jay and Patty Donnelly Chaplains and FDR Leaders teach this in-person Disaster Relief Training. The goal is to equip leaders to respond and make a difference in disasters and crises. The Disaster Relief Training is a 16-hour course. The training is vital for anyone interested in assisting in a local, regional, or large-scale disaster, including serving with FEMA, State, County, and local disaster response teams. Training is mandatory for anyone wanting to help with Foursquare Disaster Relief teams at any level.

You will be instructed on how to continue CISM, FEMA and other specialized disaster relief training. FDR Disaster Relief Training will provide a Certificate of completion for the 16 hours of FDR training. To be certified as an FDR responder, students must complete an online form after Class verifying pastoral endorsement, a background check on file with their church, and an agreement with the standards in the Foursquare Child + Youth Protection Manual. This training and certification only apply to deployment through Foursquare Disaster Relief. We encourage each church to develop a local team and network with local First Responders so they can be available to work with their community emergency services when disaster strikes.

This Disaster Relief Training is broken up into three consecutive days.
