Emergency Disaster Services

For more than a century, The Salvation Army has endeavored to ease human suffering wherever it is found.  An international organization with a long standing reputation for effective service, The Salvation Army draws on a wide range of resources which rapidly shift into action whenever and wherever disaster strikes.  Experience has demonstrated that those families that prepare for evacuation or disaster fare the best physically and emotionally.  Please be prepared!
The Salvation Army Disaster Readiness guide includes the following:
  • Emergency Supply Kit list for home and car
  • Preparedness tips for earthquakes, storms and power outages
You can find more information about preparing for disasters by visiting the US Department of Homeland Security.
