To support Florida communities through disaster preparedness, response and recovery working in partnership with community, government and faith-based organizations.



The Florida Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Network (FLAPDAN) provides disaster training, preparation, and response resources for churches and their communities and fosters a mutual network of support to better equip communities in times of natural and human-caused disaster.  Our core values include:


  • Provide training for disaster preparedness and disaster response.

  • Focuses on the long term recovery of disaster impacted communities.

  • Works collaboratively with faith-based, community and government organizations, and church partners

  • Connects partners locally and Statewide with key organizations active in the disaster training and response — FLVOAD (Florida Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), Red Cross, FEMA, and other State and Local Emergency Management organizations.

  • Seeks to expand awareness over the next five years for the need to prepare for crises and catastrophic event management in Florida communities.

Become a Commuter Volunteer!

In these times of pandemic and restricted out of state travel, when we have a disaster in Florida we will need to rely on local volunteers to help with debris removal, tarping, mucking/gutting and more. Volunteers will drive to the worksite, After a disaster, a team of commuter volunteers will provide their own transportation to the work site and return home the same day.
