|The welfare service could be described as one of the most important services provided by Civil Defence. The welfare service provides a very valuable service in emergency situations by providing for the basic physical needs of victims such as hot meals, drinks or psychosocial support. Civil Defence is unique in that it is the only volunteer based organisation trained in this area.|
Considerable suffering and further loss of life in emergencies could result if proper aftercare is not provided for disaster victims. The members can also provide food for other Civil Defence teams and emergency personnel on a disaster site.
Food preparation is carried out in accordance with HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) standards. The training provided and equipment used for the provision of this service now includes the use of Mobile catering units.
