History of Organization:

SBC disaster relief is the third larges relief agency in America. It is a group of volunteers from around PA. If needed other units from neighboring states are a phone call away. A unit can be on site within 24 hours of a call out. In large disasters often the salvation army and Red Cross use SBC D.R. feeding units to prepare food and then they distribute it to the people.

All volunteers have child clearances. All volunteers are trained in their specialty. Continual training and certification is required.
