Salvation Army Prepares For Looming Tropical Storm Emily

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Salvation Army locations in Florida are geared up with the necessary precautions should Tropical Storm Emily (link) make landfall on Florida’s Gulf coast.

Already equipped with 42 canteens, two field kitchens, a field communications unit, shower trailers, a command center and most importantly, 700 trained disaster volunteers, the Salvation Army of Florida continues to prepare for looming storm Emily and any other storm in the coming months of hurricane season.

Coincidentally, the Salvation Army of Tampa had previously scheduled emergency disaster services training and workshops for today and tomorrow. Florida residents can thus rest assured that they are in good hands with well-trained Salvation Army employees during times of disaster.
