    Still what I heard was people to help in disasters. Things like the fires ,,earthquakes, floods. Think regional build or whatever they call it now

    Despite the fun made of go bags the government is pushing the same preparedness for the general population

    Disaster occurs

    Step 1: send us your money!

    Thank you for attending this special disaster preparedness seminar!

    Given the mentality of too many JW's practical safety advice is warranted....but these documents and instructions reinforce their isolationistic cult nature.

    I see value in education regarding steps to take to ensure safety.

    If you live in a flood prone area or the hurricane path or tsunami likely area the public authorities will issue appropriate instructions....if you are so far off the beaten path that a natural disaster encompasses you all of a sudden...that requires personal education in preparedness.

    That 36 page thing probably just filled my phone memory. It looks copied partly from a government document because it mentions knowing how to contact red cross

    They do define adolescent as up to age 18! And limit news from TV natch.

    Last big storm ( mentioned in list) here we neighbors cleared the trees and helped each other. The congregation never showed up, except for the guy who lives 2 streets over with his own damage. That was mostly to gossip, but it was not such a storm that homes were uninhabitable either. Half the elders are less able than I to handle a lot of things, but they can wave their arms

    Mostly how to "help" only other HW's in the event of a natural disaster. From what I heard anyone else gets a Jay Double U dot org website card. Of course the Dubs have to dress for the "training" seminar as if they were going to field serve-us or a meeting. I am sure suits, ties, calf length dresses are conducive to working in destroyed homes etc. Silly goobers!

    My guess: this fits exactly in Watchtower's MO (as everything they do).

    1. It reinforces the persecution and Armageddon complex.
    2. It gives Watchtower a documented way to show the government they really are a charity because they give non religious disaster preparedness courses.
    3. As per point 2: I wouldn't even be surprised if Watchtower gets some kind of government grant or subsidy for their Disaster preparedness school....
    4. It gives Watchtower yet another way to impress the JW with their disaster relief works. That way JW will give more money for that goal, and Watchtower gets to earn even more from their profitable insurance scam.

    However, it would be appreciated if such donations are made without restrictions as to where and how the funds may be used.”

    I mean, after all, we have a crap load of child abuse cases to pay for!

    Now elders, be good little boys and lets try and get reimbursed from the disaster victims with their insurance checks.
