Every day, around the clock, Red Cross Disaster Action Teams are on call to respond to local emergencies. Whether a home fire or a regional flood, Disaster Action teams are ready to assess damage and provide emergency assistance. During the initial days following a disaster, the Red Cross meets immediate individual or community needs for food, shelter, clothing -- and care. Some 6,383 St. Louis Area residents received disaster assistance from the Red Cross in FY2016.
All disaster assistance is free thanks to the generosity of the American people. For more information about our disaster relief, call 314.516.2700.
