Emergency and Disaster Responders
Receive training to become a Canteen member that provides food, beverages and comfort to both the victims of an event and the police, fire and other responders. Gain training that will equip you to become a certified Emotional and Spiritual Care counselor. When the next emergency or disaster is on the horizon you will be prepared to take care of yourself, your family and then the community at large.
Here is how we use that training:
Spiritual and Emotional Care
The Salvation Army provides spiritual comfort and emotional support to disaster victims and emergency workers coping with the stress of a disaster. Salvation Army counselors, who are ordained clergy (officers) or lay personnel, will offer a "ministry of presence," as well as examples of spiritual and emotional care activities include comforting the injured and bereaved, conducting or participating in funeral and memorial services and providing chaplaincy services to disaster workers and emergency management personnel.
The most visible of The Salvation Army's disaster services is the delivery of meals and drinks to disaster victims and emergency workers. Food may be prepared and served at congregate feeding sites (such as a Salvation Army corps building, camp or shelter) or from one of the Army's mobile feeding units/canteens, which are essentially kitchens on wheels.
Through The Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network ("SATERN")(http://www.satern.org/) and other amateur radio groups, The Salvation Army helps provide emergency communications when more traditional networks, such as telephones, are inoperable.
