OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – In the middle of the major snow storm that impacted much of Oklahoma last week, a grain elevator near Enid had a large fire. Emergency Management from Garfield County contacted Captain John Dancer, Commanding Officer for Enid, to respond and assist first responders.
The Enid, Oklahoma Mobile Feeding Unit responded, providing 67 meals, 45 snacks, and 155 drinks to local and volunteer firefighters, emergency managers, and others. The unit was on site for six hours until the fire was out and they were no longer needed.
Captain Dancer states “The Salvation Army is ready to respond when called upon. It is important the community know we are prepared to mobilize quickly and will stay as long as we are needed. We provide emotional and spiritual care for those involved in the response as well as meals and hydration.”
