Once the Salvation Army is notified of storm-related needs, it sends out its Disaster Response Team.
The Salvation Army provides food and hydration during and following a disaster for those affected and to law enforcement, fire, emergency rescue and volunteer workers. Disaster relief coordinator Gary Shuler and the relief team also minister to the spiritual and emotional needs of those at the emergency site which is the mission of The Salvation Army.
“We are on alert and ready to assist the city of Cleveland and Bradley County and on call to assist the needs in Chattanooga,” Shuler said. “We are just waiting to hear from Emergency Management.”
Shuler urged Salvation Army disaster relief volunteers who are available over the next few days to contact the Salvation Army at 308-3467.
Anyone who would like to donate to the storm cleanup, either through service or monetary gifts, can call 308-3467 or visit The Salvation Army administrative office at 437 Inman St.
