Albany- A group of American Red Cross volunteers packed up Emergency Response Vehicles and headed to Miami over the weekend.

Another group of volunteers will likely head to Louisiana Tuesday or Wednesday.

"Typically an assignment goes for three weeks and them if the operation requires they'll be asked to extend, or other people will be sent in," says Daniel Churchman, disaster services director.

The volunteers will likely be responsible for mass feeding when they arrive. Officials say the best way for you to help is to send donations to American Red Cross or donate online.

They also say it's a good time for Georgians to think about and prepare their own disaster kits and plans.
