The Salvation Army spread both the Gospel and the word. The word about what services we offer during a disaster. The Dallas Office of Emergency Management hosted a Safety Extravaganza in recognition of National Preparedness Month on September 3, 2014 at Dallas City Hall Plaza. The Salvation Army set up a canteen, served cold water, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ while explaining the integral services offered during a disaster to survivors and first responders. The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services continues this mission by offering training to Salvation Army staff, officers, and volunteers to both prepare them for a disaster and to prepare them to respond to a disaster.

About The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services:
“The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.” While every disaster is unique and creates its own special needs, the core of The Salvation Army's disaster program consists of several basic services. And while these services address many of the typical needs of a disaster survivor, Salvation Army disaster relief is also flexible. Our services are adapted to the specific needs of individuals and communities and scalable according to the magnitude of the disaster.About The Salvation Army
