Local Salvation Army deployed for Irma response

Local Salvation Army deployed for Irma response”

The Salvation Army has been in active Emergency Disaster Services response for every major disaster in the United States since 1900.

More than 3,000 volunteers and staff members work for The Salvation Army in Florida.

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States.

The funds raised by KTLA viewers go directly to Salvation Army response teams from across the country.

Its services will include mobilized feeding operations and emotional and spiritual care for first responders.

He added that the problem with disaster relief is that volunteers can't just show up unannounced, there needs to be a delayed amount of time to figure out exactly where volunteers can go to provide relief.

In effort to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and Floridians who are about to be hit by Hurricane Irma, The Salvation Army will teach volunteers how to safely provide food, water and supplies before they are on the ground in a disaster area. In the case of the Tennessee teams, they are staging strategically in Chattanooga so they are able to respond with potentially changing circumstances.

Local charity organizations have been busy in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The Salvation Army is providing much needed services for the long term recovery with Hurricane Harvey and will for Hurricane Irma.

Chicagoans interested in helping hurricane victims can visit the Chicago Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Service headquarters in Elk Grove Village for free Emergency Disaster Training on September 9, Sept. 12 and Sept 16.

Territorial Commander Commissioner Mark Tillsley has encouraged Salvation Army personnel throughout the Caribbean to "give attention to those most vulnerable in the communities, and where possible make Salvation Army facilities available for shelter, support and practical assistance".
