DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Texas Baptist Men is preparing to send teams to Kentucky to help in the aftermath of deadly tornadoes as early as Wednesday, a spokesperson said.

TBM Director of Communication John Hall said Sunday that, “Our extended network is setting up 5 sites in Kentucky right now. We are prepping as many as three chainsaw teams to leave as early as Wednesday. All of our chainsaw teams have been moved up to standby status, which means start getting ready to leave.”

Hall said that the decentralized nature of the organization means that Texans from across the state would be leaving for Kentucky, even though the organization’s warehouse is in Dallas.

“When our chainsaw teams do leave, they will be rolling from different points in the state, making it harder to shoot a convoy,” Hall said.
