American Red Cross North Central PA Chapter Disaster ServicesProvide shelter and meals to those seeking refuge from a hurricane or flood or in the wake of a tornado, earthquake, or hazardous materials incident. In addition to these services, the core of Red Cross disaster relief activities is the assistance given to individuals and families affected by disaster. This assistance is geared toward meeting immediate emergency needs, providing the means for them to pay for what they need most - from groceries, new clothing, and rent to emergency home repairs, transportation, household items, medicines, and tools. The Red Cross also helps those needing long-term recovery assistance when other resources are not available or are inadequate. Relief work also includes:
  • Feeding emergency workers
  • Referring those affected by disaster to other available resources
  • Handling inquiries from concerned family members outside the disaster area
  • Coordinating and transporting incoming local donations to other areas affected by disasters
  • Providing blood and blood products to disaster victims
