(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) hosted a presentation focusing on how to respond, deter and prevent disasters in places of worship Wednesday at the Huffman Memorial United Methodist Church.

COAD is a group made up of local organizations and private citizens who strive to be fully prepared in a worst-case scenario.

Pastor Larry Williams who helped organize the event stressed the importance of being fully prepared in these situations. 

"We hope that folks can get a sense that it's not a scare tactic," Williams said. "It's simply thinking ahead and being ready in a proper way."

The event featured presentations from Sheldon Lyon, of the safety council and retired police officer, Jim Conners.

Temperatures should be back down in the 80s by early next week with a chance of rain Sunday as a strong cold front pushes through. This will help bring less humid air and relief from the heat into the region. Mostly sunny skies and near average temperatures are expected through next week.
