Today we are sharing with you this blog post from The Salvation Army USA blog with a few local notes. Enjoy!

Disasters can strike suddenly, anytime and anywhere. While each event is unique and requires its own special response, the core of The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) program is targeted to meet the most basic needs such as food and shelter.

In the midst of almost every disaster you can spot a Salvation Army “canteen” (a “kitchen on wheels”) which provides and serves up to 1,500 meals a day for disaster survivors, first responders, and emergency personnel.

As part of Disaster Preparedness Month, we would like to share a delicious recipe from The Salvation Army’s EDS Cookbook.

Nothing says comfort more than a hardy breakfast. In the aftermath of a disaster, the relief of a hot familiar meal can help give the energy and comfort needed to get back on your feet. It’s hard to go wrong with eggs and cheese served between a warm biscuit!

Cheese ‘N Egg Bisciutwiches

6 eggs

1 TBSP   milk

1 TBSP chopped green pepper

1 American cheese slice

10-oz can buttermilk flakey biscuits

1/8 tsp pepper if desired

Heat oven to 400°. Prepare biscuits according to package directions. In medium bowl, combine egg, milk, green pepper and pepper; beat well. In large skillet, melt butter; stir in egg mixture. Cook until set but still moist, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cut cheese into 20 triangles. Place biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet. Split each biscuit in half crosswise. Spoon eggs onto bottom ½ of biscuit. Top with 2 cheese triangles; replace top ½ of biscuit. Bake at 400° for 2-3 min. Or until cheese is melted. Serve right away.

September is Disaster Preparedness Month

September is disaster preparedness month. Is your family ready?

Governor Rick Perry has declared September as Disaster Preparedness Month in Texas. This coincides with National Preparedness Month across the United States.

Disasters in Texas

The Lone Star State encounters at least one major disaster nearly every calendar year. Texans regularly face floods, wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes and other severe weather. September is traditionally dangerous hurricane season along the Gulf Coast. It is time to get prepared.

We encourage everyone to assemble a disaster supply kit of important emergency supplies including a first aid kit, a NOAA Weather Radio or battery-operated radio, flashlight, medication, non-perishable food items, and bottled water. Be aware of where the nearest storm shelter is located, know where you and loved ones will go if an evacuation is necessary, and develop an emergency plan for communicating with family and friends.
