Firefighters and residents of Colorado Springs welcomed rain on Sunday that assisted with efforts to combat the area’s Black Forest Fire which has been blazing since June 11. The fire, which has destroyed 14,280 acres and 484 homes, was reported as 65% contained on Sunday.

Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) crews remain on site providing food, hydration and additional assistance to those impacted by this disaster. An EDS team from Casper, WY continues to assist firefighters at the Black Forest Fire Station #1 with food and drinks. Other feeding services such as this continue at the Emergency Operations Center, the Penrose Event Center and the Kit Carson Stables.

With the help of other organizations, The Salvation Army is also providing a wide range of assistance, including emotional and spiritual care, at the Disaster Assistance Center (DAC) located at 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Rd. in Colorado Springs between 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The organization’s disaster services advantage is its size and scope. The Salvation Army can be found serving in most communities even before disaster strikes, which makes mobilizing, serving and providing long-term relief that much more efficient.

Still assisting impacted residents of the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire, The Salvation Army is coordinating with various agencies to discuss plans for Black Forest Fire recovery efforts in the months ahead and will continue to serve Coloradans in crisis so long as we are needed.
