Weekly Disaster Incident Update

On average, the Dallas Area Chapter responds to more than 600 disasters per year locally. Going forward, we will start providing an update weekly about our local disaster responses. It is our hope that these updates will provide a little insight into the disasters we respond to every day that don’t necessarily make news headlines.
  • Last week, the Dallas Area Chapter responded to 13 disaster incidents.
  • 62 individuals received assistance to help cope with and recover from their losses.
  • Approximately $10,240 in financial assistance has been committed to help those affected by the disasters.
