The following documents are Crisis Communication Templates created by United Methodist Communications and revised by the Desert Southwest Conference for the local church. They are intended to help churches communicate quickly in a crisis and handle the news media. Churches may revise these documents to make them their own, modifying them to the circumstances and setting of the local church. Duplication/modification rights are given by UMCOM for that express purpose.
