The American Red Cross saves lives. When disaster strikes, we respond with food, shelter and hope. When barriers of distance, language or warfare separate loved ones, we open lines of communication. When families, co-workers and communities must prepare for emergencies, we help them take action.
Each year, the Gold Country Region brings together 2,400 volunteers to care for their neighbors, train 55,000 people in life-saving skills and respond to a disaster once every 21 hours. In emergencies large and small - a house fire, an earthquake, a flood - right here in our community or on distant shores, people can count on the Red Cross.
In emergencies large and small - home fires, floods, wildfires - down the street, across the country or around the world, people can count on the American Red Cross Capital Region Chapter to help them with disaster recovery.
For more than a century, the American Red Cross has prepared people to save lives through health and safety education and training. From first aid, CPR and bloodborne pathogens training to swimming and lifeguarding and babysitter's training, Red Cross health and safety programs help people lead safer and healthier lives.
The American Red Cross teaches individuals, families, and organizations how to prevent, prepare for, and respond to disasters through our Community Disaster Education program. We provide trained professionals who will customize a presentation to meet the needs and interests of your business, school or organization.
