The Salvation Army provides numerous disaster relief services. Since each disaster is unique and devastating in the way it impacts the lives of individuals and communities, The Salvation Army's emergency & disaster response is community based, varying from place to place based upon the community's situation and the magnitude of the incident.
Emergency response services are activated on short notice according to an agreed-upon notification procedure. As one of Canada’s major emergency relief organizations, The Salvation Army is often assigned specific roles by emergency preparedness authorities. Even with the ability to be flexible and to respond based upon the community's situation, there are several basic services that The Salvation Army offers. These services form the core of The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services program.
