Welcome to the American Red Cross of Northwest Georgia

Originally chartered in 1917 as the Floyd County Chapter and renamed the American Red Cross of Northwest Georgia in 2010 when we combined with the Dalton/Whitfield Chapter and the Murray County Chapter, we have grown to serve 14 counties with a population of approximately 800,000 people. Today, the Red Cross of Northwest Georgia is hard at work in our community – every day – bringing help and hope to neighbors in need. With the same passion and commitment of our volunteer founders, we’re empowering a new generation to prevent, prepare for and cope with emergencies that devastate homes, threaten lives and separate loved ones.

Ready When the Time Comes

READY WHEN THE TIME COMES (RWTC) is a program of the American Red Cross that provides volunteers from partner companies and community organizations to be immediately ready to help in the time of a local, large scale disaster. RWTC volunteers serve as “reserves” that can be called up when disaster response requires more than the normal corps of local disaster volunteers.
