Emergency Disaster Services

26 August 2011

Salvation Army personnel are on the scene in the Bahamas responding to Hurricane Irene. Representatives of The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Service Team have been asked to partner with the Bahamas National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to survey and assess the damage on the islands of Acklins and Mayaguana. Plans are underway for Members of NEMA and Salvation Army representatives to tour the damaged areas by air and then determine how to best move forward.

The Salvation Army has also been asked to provide disaster services on Long Island and Cat Island, Bahamas. As there is currently no Salvation Army presence on the islands a needs assessment will be performed and a response plan will be formulated.
