EMERGENCY SERVICES

Disaster Services stands ready to rush relief to victims of natural and manmade disasters in the Quad Cities area.  The Red Cross emblem is a welcome beacon to those in urgent need of assistance.  In disasters large and small, Red Cross workers first focus on victims' basic needs: shelter, food, first aid, and counseling. 

The Red Cross also helps victims obtain clothing, temporary housing, transportation, and other necessities.  Long-term assistance is provided when other resources, such as insurance benefits or government assistance are delayed, insufficient, or unavailable.  All disaster assistance is free, with no payment expected or accepted.  This is made possible by the generous contributions from the Quad City community.

At all hours of the day and night, Disaster Services staff and volunteers help people after fires, floods, tornadoes, and other disasters ravage their homes and threaten to devastate their lives.

  • Follow the advice of local emergency officials.

  • Listen to your radio or television for news and instructions.
     

  • If the disaster occurs near you, check for injuries and give first aid.  Get help for seriously injured people.

  • Confine or secure your pets.
