Red Cross Media Alerts
  Disaster Response
Local Red Cross volunteers once again respond to the call of duty deploying to the mid-west winter and ice storm. Theodore Childress and Wheeler Pounds are driving the Birmingham Area Chapter's Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) to Muskogee, Oklahoma to provide mass care relief. Childress of Jefferson County has been providing Red Cross assistance since 2004 responding to many local and national responses. Pounds of  Walker County has been a dedicated Red Cross volunteer for ten years and has served as Chairman for the Walker County Service Center in Jasper. This assignment is a "hardship" assignment due to the extreme cold and weather, power outages and travel conditions. Those interested in becoming a part of disaster response for American Red Cross should call Volunteer Services at 205-458-8253.
