Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) is there when disaster strikes. Most often this means providing hydration and food service to first responders and victims at local fires or larger disasters such as tornadoes or floods. Whatever the circumstance, EDS relief efforts are supporting communities in times of significant need.
Volunteers are needed for both behind the scenes and front-line disaster work. While every disaster is unique and creates its own special needs, the core of The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Program consists of several basic provisions: food service, donations management, emergency communications, disaster case management and emotional and spiritual care. This position requires a willingness to work on-call.
We welcome adult volunteers of all ages to serve at varying levels - from time commitments of just a few hours each month to being available at a moment’s notice.
