Three American Red Cross volunteers from the Chattanooga area left this morning at 9 a.m., and another will be deployed on Monday to join ongoing Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Susan Jackson, a registered nurse; Katherine Danielle Crane; and Tiffany Moore all left for New York Friday morning. Jamie Lewis, an emergency services specialist with the Red Cross, will leave Monday. Officials said that Lewis and Jackson will be assigned to health services, and Crane and Moore will assist with client casework.
This is Lewis's first Red Cross deployment. Lewis is a native of Southeast Tennessee and has 20 years of experience in public safety. She joined the Red Cross in September.
Crane, a volunteer with the Chattanooga Red Cross since August, is also going on her first deployment.
Jackson is a nurse manager and has volunteered with the Red Cross since 2000. She was one of the first Red Cross registered nurses deployed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. This is her second deployment to the Hurricane Sandy-affected areas, her first one being Nov. 3-Dec. 4.
Moore has been a volunteer for about 18 months and has been deployed several times.
