Local Red Cross Volunteers Headed to OK
DAYTON -- Some local Red Cross workers are headed to the devastated Oklahoma region after a deadly EF-5 twister ripped through, flattening entire neighborhoods.
"it's overwhelming, a lot of emotions go with it. I'll be better when I get there," said Dixie Kirkland who's headed to the heart of the catastrophe.
We were there as the Red Cross volunteer nurse packed up. She's got a small bag and a load of emergency supplies.
Dixie says they work as a team, helping the people there get whatever medical help they need.
"Sometimes people are so in shock, they don't realize they need medical care. As red Cross volunteers, we're there to assist in any shape or way that we can."
Holding a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal, Dixie said, "Sometimes this is all they're going to have... we give these to the kids. Mickey Mouse is fun."
So far, two Dayton volunteers are bound for Oklahoma, but others are ready as soon as they are called.

CINCINNATI/DAYTON -- The Greater Cincinnati-Dayton Region of the American Red Cross is preparing their Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV) for deployment to Oklahoma. The American Red Cross has already opened six shelters and deployed 27 ERVs and several mobile feeding support trailers in the wake of the devastating tornadoes that shattered the state.
“We are prepared to lend our support when the time comes for Cincinnati to send volunteers and supplies,” said Trish Smitson, Regional CEO of the Greater Cincinnati-Dayton Region. “Our volunteers are routinely deployed for disaster relief support around the country, and it is expected that we will be called upon to aid in this effort as well,” said Smitson.
One ERV can supply mobile distribution of more than 3,000 meals. In addition to mobile feeding they are used for bulk distribution of relief supplies.
Smitson said thoughts and concerns go to everyone in Oklahoma following this horrific tornado. People with family near the tornado are encouraged to connect with loved ones to find out they are safe. This can be done through the “I’m Safe” feature of the free Red Cross tornado app. In addition, if you have access to a computer, go to www.redcross.org/safeandwell to list yourself as safe. If not, you can text loved ones or call a family member and ask them to register you on the site.
American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts provide food, shelter and emotional support to those affected by disasters. To make a donation go to redcross.org, 1-800-REDCROSS or texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
