Emergency Disaster Services
When disaster strikes, The Salvation Army responds with food, supplies, shelter, counseling and HOPE.
Whether it be a local incident or a major disaster, Salvation Army staff and volunteers are often the first on the scene and the last to depart, honoring a century-old commitment to serve those in need, at the time of need, and at the place of need.
The red shield continues to be a beacon of compassion; of immediate aid, psychological support and spiritual counsel to individuals and families whose lives have been disrupted or shattered by forces beyond their control. Salvation Army disaster response teams, coordinated and directed by commissioned officers and trained personnel, supported by volunteers, are "on call" to serve at all disasters and civil disorders which place a community or its populace at risk or which may disrupt or destroy family security and well-being.
A coordinated community response to floods, tornados, fires and other disasters can make all the difference to people who have lost everything. The Salvation Army joins other agencies in helping people put their lives back together after a disaster.
