Red Cross deploys Emergency Response Vehicle to St. Louis
The Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross will send an Emergency Response Vehicle to St. Louis to assist with the tornado recovery effort.
“Two volunteers will take our Emergency Response Vehicle to St. Louis Sunday morning to help with the relief operation there,” says Chris Harmon, the Regional Director of Emergency Services for the Greater Ozarks Chapter.
The volunteers will stay in St. Louis to help as needed. Typically Emergency Response Vehicles deliver meals and snacks to disaster victims and to responders as they work to clean up.
The Emergency Response Vehicle ( File Photo at: http://bit.ly/RC-ERV ) is scheduled to depart the Springfield Office at approximately 5 AM Sunday.
