  Red Cross on standby for severe weather
With a significant threat of severe weather coming through central Alabama later today, the Birmingham Area Chapter of the American Red Cross is putting volunteers on standby.

We've activated our call system, which will poll 261 local volunteers about their availability should we need the assistance. These volunteers cover a whole range of training and skills, from disaster assessment to family service to shelter operations.

We'll let you know when we start activating Red Cross volunteers and staff, and update shelter information here on an as-needed basis.
