Red Cross Media Alerts
  Crew leaves at 2pm
Two volunteers from the Birmingham Area Chapter leave later this afternoon for the storm-ravaged counties of western Tennessee.

Theodore Childress and Wheeler Pounds will meet at the chapter headquarters around 2 o'clock, to prepare the Emergency Response Vehicle for deployment. They will make sure it's got a fresh load of snacks and drinks, as well as a supply of food-delivery items like cups and containers.

They are due to arrive at the disaster operations headquarters in Jackson, Tennessee this evening -- and first thing Tuesday, they'll immediately deploy to support search teams and any affected residents who need emergency feeding assistance.
