Three local Red Cross volunteers are preparing to leave for Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  They're going there to help with recovery efforts from last weekend's tornado.  

Lisamarie Griffin of Bossier City and Charles Adams of Benton will be manning the local chapter's Emergency Response Vehicle.  Jean Lanier of Bossier City will travel with them as far as Natchez.  There, she'll meet up with Ray Strickland of Alexandria to help staff the Alexandria ERV.

The local contingent plans to roll out from the Northwest Louisiana Chapter offices on Brook Hollow Drive at nine o'clock tomorrow morning.  The Red Cross says additional volunteers may be sent to Hattiesburg if they're needed.
