Disaster Services

When nature takes its toll - winds howl, fires ravish, rains swell rivers and streams - we are there to help. Red Cross disaster relief focuses on meeting people's immediate emergency disaster-caused needs. When a disaster threatens or strikes, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to address basic human needs for those affected.

Local Disasters

Our chapter maintains four Disaster Action Teams and two Emergency Response Vehicles available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to local disasters. The Northern Utah Chapter responds more than 50 times a year to support the immediate needs of hundreds of local people displaced by disaster and the first responders sent to aid them, free of charge. For more information about how to volunteer, please call our Volunteer Coordinator at (801)627-0000 or E-mail Judy Loper at 

In addition to these immediate need services, the Red Cross disaster relief assistance is given to individuals and families affected by disaster to enable them to resume their normal daily activities. All Red Cross assistance is made possible by the generous contribution of people's time, money, and skills.  The Red Cross works the year round with city, county and state emergency management agencies to facilitate community and personal disaster preparedness and planning. Ongoing efforts continue to recruit and train volunteers, secure resources for shelter, communications equipment and relief supplies. For information on how to contribute supplies or volunteer your facility for shelter use, call the Emergency Services Director at (801) 627-0000.

This improves their training and skills, and assures that Red Cross workers will be available to our community should a major disaster occur here. Red Cross volunteers feed disaster victims and emergency workers, handle inquiries from concerned family members outside the disaster area, provide blood and blood products, and helps those affected by disaster to access other available resources.
