Whenever we're asked by local and state agencies, The Salvation Army responds to our region's wildfires. As one of the nation’s major emergency relief organizations, The Salvation Army is on the ground before, during and after a disaster strikes. Our Emergency Disaster Services teams deploy in canteens, or mobile kitchens, to provide food, hydration, emotional comfort and more.

Those in need of information may call our hotline at 1-888-SA-HELP1 for up to date information on where we're providing services. See below for updates on our services.

 

Since August 19, multiple Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Service teams have deployed to provide wildfire relief across Northern California.
