The Salvation Army of Wisconsin & Upper Michigan unveiled a new mobile truck Wednesday that will be used in emergency situations and at events throughout Wisconsin.
The trailer, equipped with a radio mobile communications unit, air conditioning and storage for emergency distribution of beverages and small meals, can be used as a hub for communication transmissions during disaster relief efforts. It can accommodate two to three staff people at any given time.
“On behalf of the Salvation Army, we are all very grateful for this generous gift and thankful for all those who donate to the disaster relief cause,” Major Steve Merritt said. “This just bolsters what the Salvation Army can do to help those in need and we are ready to put it into good use.”
