The National Next of Kin Registry (NOKR), dedicated to making it possible for people to register their next of kin and others for everyday emergencies, in natural catastrophes, or man made disasters, is looking to the faith-community to help them with their efforts.

The National Next of Kin Registry (NOKR), dedicated to making it possible for people to register their next of kin and others for everyday emergencies, in natural catastrophes, or man made disasters, is looking to the faith-community to help them with their efforts.

NOKR, the nation’s only central database serving local and state agencies to access victims emergency contacts, has named Jeff Hanna, one of the nation’s most recognized church safety, security and risk management professionals, as their first Faith-Community Division Director.   The new division will extend NOKR's FREE emergency contact services to individuals and families of all faiths.

To date, over 6 million individuals have signed up both online and through live events.   In the event of a personal, family or widespread emergency NOKR will respond by providing registered information to public trust agencies and coordinate real time information exchange between government entities, private sector non-profit agencies, and faith-based organizations.

Mark Cerney, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NOKR, believes Jeff Hanna will be a valuable addition to the non-profit’s overall mission.   Hanna is a former detective, pastor, and acclaimed author who has written three books, hundreds of articles and is a safety, security and ministry protection trainer will bring his expertise to NOKR's new outreach program.

Hanna, the new Faith-Community Division Director shares, “By their design, faith communities are in a position to reach out and inform their membership and community of this FREE service that can help families locate loved ones in the face of a personal, local, or national emergency.   Caring for people in their greatest time of need is a faithful act that all people of faith should want to be a part of.”
