ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Those seeking to help out in Maryland Heights after Friday’s destructive storm are being asked to call a special hotline before showing up at volunteer sites.

Battalion Chief Jim Usry of the Pattonville Fire Protection District says dozens of people are showing up at Pattonville High School and several other areas in Maryland Heights, but damage in the area is so severe that the city cannot handle them all.

Those interested in assisting should call 1-800-427-4626 before showing up to any volunteer site. This number will allow crews to get pertinent information from volunteers so that when they are ready to deploy, they’ll know who to call.
