HOWCALM® Overview

The HOWCALM® (House of Worship Communitywide Asset and LogisticsManagement) system is a secure, user-friendly, web-based management tool that identifies and inventories the physical assets, programmatic resources, and skilled volunteers that houses of worship, religious schools, andfaith-based service providers can activate and deploy in case of disaster.


We often have little or no control over the cause of a disaster. However, HOWCALM® will empower you to enhance yourhouse of worship’s level of preparedness as well as that of your faith community and its senior leadership. Participation in HOWCALM® will also help your house of worship connect with other faith communities and build relationships to promote thelevels of understanding and cooperation needed for concerted, effective humane responses to all types of disaster.

Since 2006, HOWCALM® participants have partnered with NYDIS to assistfaith communities throughout the city to better respond and deploy their assets during disasters. After the April 2007 Nor’eastern in Staten Island, the August 2007 tornado and floods in Brooklyn and Queens, and the March 2008 crane collapse in Manhattan, NYDIS’s ability to promptly offer onsite response and recovery services was significantly enhanced by the wealth of data in the HOWCALM® database.
