US Army Assists Catholic Charities in Disaster Relief Planning

The nonprofit Catholic Charities in New York recently received in-depth training from the US Army Reserves on planning for disaster relief operations:

“We are here to provide a baseline capability for Catholic Charities in emergency planning and continuity of operations planning,” said Mr. Robert Stabb, Emergency Management Specialist at U.S. Army Reserve Command. “Catholic Charities is part of the community response plan and the whole of community response element for their community, and they have specific emergency response requirements such as disaster case management as assigned by the state of New York.”

The US military does much more than deploy to combat zones, and as it works to support the nation it supports not only government operations, but even nonprofit — and even religious — organizations, as well.
