31 Days 31 Ways- Find Out What Emergency Services Does in Your Community

Did you know that the American Red Cross responds to nearly 400 home fires in the Columbus area each year? The Disaster Action Team is only one part of the Emergency Services department. Emergency Services also houses Community Disaster Education (profiled earlier this month), Service to Military Families, and Client Casework. Emergency Services also keeps a reserve corps of volunteers trained and ready to respond to major regional and national disasters.  

When there is flooding, a tornado or any man-made or natural disaster that might cause emergency needs for local residents, the Red Cross is ready to provide assistance. On both the local and national levels, assistance may take the form of opening a shelter, providing meals or drinks for disaster victims and emergency workers, as well as the immediate emergency need for clothing, eyeglasses and prescription drugs.
