A Maui Red Cross volunteer is being deployed to Tennessee where raging wildfires have forced residents from their homes.

Maui’s Pamela Jones left last night to assist residents in the region with Health Services.  She is among a list of volunteers with the American Red Cross that are being deployed to assist with shelter, food, health services and damage assessments.
