Disaster Relief

Emergency Disaster Services (EDS)

Emergency situations are a common occurrence in any community, and preparedness for these situations is part of the work of The Salvation Army.  Our disaster canteen in Quincy is manned by a team of staff and volunteers who are ready to respond in time of need.

In a disaster, whether it be flood, tornado, fire, etc., The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Team is prepared to provide spiritual counseling, food, shelter and any other necessities to assist public safety personnel and victims at disaster sites.

The Salvation Army remains on the scene of any disaster until the emergency needs are met and services are no longer needed.  The Salvation Army also provides extended services in major disasters involving massive cleanup or reconstruction.

New volunteers to the disaster team are always welcome and ongoing training is provided for all team members.
