DisasterThe Red Shield – Beacon of Compassion:  Of Immediate aid, psychological support and spiritual counsel to those whose lives have been shattered by forces beyond their control.

How it all started………
On September 8, 1900, a hurricane devasated Galveston, Texas leaving more than 5,000 people dead.  Immediately, the call to arms went out from The Salvation Army’s National Commander that all avaliable officers proceed to the disaster site to provide physical and spiritual assistance.  With that order, The Salvation Army’s Disaster Services program was born.
