Disasters have become an all too familiar occurrence in our communities. Whether natural or man-made, they leave a wake of devastation for those involved.

The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services program (EDS) seeks to provide physical, emotional and spiritual comfort in times of disaster. Our disaster volunteers are trained to assist in all kinds of emergencies by providing food, clothing, shelter or financial resource to those affected by such calamity. Mobile Feeding Units known as "canteens" are a familiar sight to firemen, policemen, and victims alike, serving hot and cold drinks, snacks and complete meals.

Working with local emergency management and other community disaster organizations, The Salvation Army collaborates with many community and government agencies to provide the best possible services to those in need.

How Can You Help?

The best way to help in the case of disaster is through monetary donations. This allows us to direct funds into the heart of the disaster without hesitation. Please click on the "Donate Now" link on the left side of this page to help out with a financial contribution.

For the most part, EDS is staffed by rescue and response specialists. There are times, however, when the scope of disaster is beyond the means of our resources. In these cases we will call upon our registered volunteers for assistance. If you’d like to become a registered volunteer, please contact the individual listed on this page.  You'll find more information here.
