JACKSON — On Oct. 15, The Salvation Army held the grand opening ceremony for its new Disaster Command Center and Warehouse in Jackson. The event was held at the facility’s site on Ford Avenue in Hawkins Field Industrial Park.

The Disaster Center includes an emergency operations center for disaster response management, warehouse space for disaster deployment support and storage for a new 54-foot field kitchen and support vehicles. The 35,000-square-foot complex serves Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.

“This warehouse is an important step in the expanding ministry of disaster response and relief work in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi and signifies a significant investment by The Salvation Army in the lives of residents so often affected by natural and manmade disasters,” said Maj. Gene Hogg, divisional secretary for The Salvation Army’s Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi Division.
