Disaster Recovery

Helping those on the front lines of tragedy.

The Salvation Army disaster response teams are coordinated and directed by commissioned officers and trained personnel and supported by volunteers. A fully-equipped DRV (Disaster Relief Vehicle) donated by FedEx- and staffed by trained volunteers is “on call” when disaster strikes.

In the Memphis and Shelby County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) plan, The Salvation Army is charged with providing meals and snacks for victims as well as police, fire, and other emergency personnel.
