Emergency Disaster Services

Since each disaster is unique and devastating in the way it impacts the lives of individuals and communities, The Salvation Army’s emergency and disaster response is community based, varying from place to place upon the community’s situation and the magnitude of the incident.

The Salvation Army has the ability to provide both immediate emergency assistance and long-term recovery help. Emergency response services are activated on short notice according to an agreed upon notification procedure, while long term recovery is strategically planned in response to the situation, through working and partnering with many other community entities.

The Salvation Army has been providing emergency disaster services since the 1917 Halifax Explosion.
