Disaster Ministry

Disaster Ministry of Lutheran Church of Our Savior

Lutheran Church of Our Savior supports its members and its community in times of emergency and disaster.  This is consistent with our mission "to live in faith, share the gospel, and bring God's healing and hope to all people". 

Disaster Ministry includes communicating emergency incident information, encouraging emergency preparedness, and providing material and spiritual support in times of crisis. 



Emergency Notification

San Bernardino County sends emergency messages to the landline phones and by text to designated cell phones of those in affected areas through the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS) in affected areas.  Click here to go to the County site to find out more or register your cell phone for TENS alerts. 

Disaster Assistance
Homeowners, renters and business owners who sustain losses or damage may be eligible for disaster aid: 
Call 1-800-521-FEMA(3362).


Great California ShakeOut

Scientists, emergency response agencies and disaster planning experts want you to get ready for an event that is likely to happen soon.  More than 300 experts have developed an earthquake scenario to simulate a 7.8 rupture along the southern San Andreas Fault.  They are also asking faith-based organizations, schools, businesses, and individuals to annually participate in the Great California ShakeOut, held each October.   Whether a disaster becomes a catastrophe is partly dependent on what we do today to prepare to respond & recover.  Our congregation has participated in this event each of the last 2 years.  Members have a basic church emergency plan and a place to record a basic home emergency plan in the Membership Directory.

Helping in the face of disaster!

Disasters cause many secondary problems impacting people that we don't often think about. Schools close. Where do children dependent on the school meal system eat? Asthma problems increase. Where do persons with asthma difficulties find primary care services? HIV+ persons have increased respiratory problems. Where do they go for food, masks and healthcare?

During catastrophic fires, Central City Lutheran Mission:

  • Feeds more children during the day because schools are closed.
  • Has more people come to the food pantry on Tuesday looking for food.
  • Has an increase in people visiting the H Street Clinic with respiratory problems.
  • Has an increase of HIV+ persons coming for food and services.

During times when traditional human services are over taxed, please remember community based agencies like Central City Lutheran whose stretched resources are used even more.

How can you Help?

  • Bring fresh fruits, vegetables and meats to our kitchen.
  • Bring quality snack foods that can be used by persons with compromised immune systems.
  • Cash donations are always welcome to help CCLM meet increased costs in providing food and healthcare services.
