The Salvation Army has been responding to the incident since 12:00 P.M yesterday. The Army’s emergency disaster services (EDS) was called in by the Omaha Fire Department soon after the accident took place and immediately began providing relief and respite to first responders and plant workers.

Today, Salvation Army volunteers will serve lunch to first responders and others on the scene.

The Salvation Army will continue to help meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of both the victims and the rescue workers as needed.
