The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services program provides support to individuals and families displaced as a result of disasters such as fires, floods and tornadoes, as well as providing nutrition and hydration to first responders at the scene.
With an enhanced fleet of emergency vehicles, an increasing number of trained volunteers and new partner relationships with local, regional and national service providers, The Salvation Army can bring support and resources faster than ever before to those in crises.
The Salvation Army in Ottawa now has the capacity to serve over 10,000 meals a day during a disaster.
The Salvation Army is also moving to better serve the environment with the use of compostable food service containers, cups and utensils on our emergency disaster canteen vehicles. Having seen an increase in weather related disasters over the last few years, The Salvation Army is committed to giving hope today while caring for tomorrow.
