Emergency Disaster Services

The Salvation Army EDS mobilizes during a fire or similar crisis in the community.  The specific task of the CCRU (Community Crisis Response Unit - mobile truck and kitchen), is to provide food and water for firemen and other emergency personnel on site.

Volunteer team members serve as:

  • EDS CCRU Driver
  • EDS On Location with CCRU Cook and Server
  • EDS CCRU and CCRU Garage Cleaning Crew
  • EDS Emotional and Spiritual Care Team



We were grateful to receive over 75 interested persons to volunteer with our EDS team at our EDS Information Evening, February 23, 2016!  We will continue to keep you updated throughout the application and training process!
