WAKE COUNTY, N.C. (Wednesday, June 10, 2009) - The Salvation Army of Wake County worked into the night responding to the ConAgra Foods plant explosion. Among the first to arrive on scene at the Garner Senior Center where evacuated employees were being bused and families reuniting, Salvation Army personnel and volunteers have been feeding and hydrating evacuees, anxious family members and emergency first responders. The Salvation Army of Wake County dispatched its mobile feeding unit (Canteen) to the scene, which is capable of preparing and serving thousands of full scale meals for short and extended response periods. About 300 workers were in the plant in Garner, North Carolina when the blast occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 9, 2009. Many suffered from exposure to toxic fumes from ammonia leaks and some also suffered severe burns, authorities said. Immediate hydration support was provided due to the hot weather. Rescuers had to temporarily suspend their search overnight because rainwater made the damaged roof heavier and more dangerous.

The Salvation Army of Wake County has promised the employees and families of the victims that they will be there to serve as long as needed. "The town of Garner has welcomed our services and we will provide food, hope and prayers for as long as they feel it is necessary", stated Paige Bagwell, Director of Operations and Communications for the Salvation Army of Wake County. The Commanding Officer of this command, Major Alvin Smith commented, "Our prayers are with the families of the victims, the employees who have been through a horrific ordeal and all rescue workers and management who are working tirelessly to discover what happened. The Salvation Army will stay in the trenches with them for the duration".
