Response Vehicle to Deploy

Southwestern NY 9/21/12 Response Vehicle to Deploy

The American Red Cross is preparing for what could be a large disaster response spanning multiple states and is already starting to help the millions of people whose communities are under warnings from Tropical Storm Isaac. Red Cross disaster workers are responding throughout the Gulf region, providing shelter and help in Florida and preparing to open evacuation shelters in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Locally, the American Red Cross continues to deploy volunteers to assist in the affected areas, and Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV) from Niagara County and Southwestern New York will be heading to Port Allen, Louisiana on Tuesday morning to assist in Mass Care and Feeding efforts. Volunteers Priscilla Baker and Susan Schafer of Ransomville will be driving the ERV from Niagara Falls, and Charles Meder of Stockton and Pete Swales of Springville will deploy with the ERV from Jamestown.
