NATURAL DISASTERS

Direct help is available from your local and police departments, volunteer
citizens corps, health bureau, and through the following national
organization's local participating branches:

American National Red Cross
Disaster Relief Program
17 & D Streets, N.W.
Washington, D.C.

Regional Offices include:

Eastern Area Office Midwestern Area Office
615 North St. Asaph Street 10195 Corporate Square
Alexandria VA. 22314 St. Louis, Mo. 63132

Southeastern Area Office Western Area Office
1955 Monroe Drive, N.E. P.O. Box 3673
Atlanta, Ga. 30324 San Francisco, Ca. 94119

The Red Cross provides free emergency assistance in the form of fixed or
mobile feeding stations, clothing, shelter, first aid, or provision of other
basic needs in all natural disasters. It also makes referrals to disaster
loan or grant programs for the victims and maintains disaster action teams.


Mennonite Disaster Service
21 South Twelfth Street
Akron, Pa. 17501

Founded in 1950, this transnational disaster relief organization
(United States, Canada, Central America, and the Carribean) was
recognized by the disaster relief act of 1974 to help victims of
natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes,
and wind storms. They assist in clean up, temporary and permanent repairs,
and long term reconstruction for the elderly.


The Salvation Army
National Public Affairs Office
1025 Fifteenth Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20005

The Salvation Army offers individual and family counseling, and casework
services; registration and identification of victims; missing persons
services; medical assistance; temporary shelter; mass feeding; mobile
feeding; collection of donated goods for victims, and clothing distributors;
furniture, food, commodities, and bedding distribution; services to
emergency workers; and referrals.


THE FOLLOWING FEDERAL AGENCIES PROVIDE INFORMATION AND/OR ASSISTANCE IN
DISASTERS:

Federal Disaster Assistance Administration (FDAA)
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developement
451 Seventh Street S.W. Washington D.C. 20410

Coordinates all government agency disaster programs; administers the
Disaster relief fund; conducts disaster research and programs in
disaster relief and recovery and readiness determination.

It is best to inquire on the local level about aid available to victims
of major disasters. However questions will be answered about what programs
someone might be eligible for from the Washington D.C. Headquarters. A
24 hour disaster operation center is operated from the District, but most
calls are from public officials, Congressional representatives, and even
the White House to determine the status of a disaster-struck area.

Local residents should first contact their local representatives to find
out that information

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
