Disaster Services

Red Cross disaster relief focuses on meeting people's immediate emergency needs caused by disaster. When disaster threatens or strikes, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, and health and emotional health service to address basic human needs and assist individuals and families in resuming their normal daily activities independently.

School Safety Initiative

The School Safety Initiative (SSI) Program was developed to teach children, teens, and young adults safety awareness and safety skills. Through the SSI programs students of all ages learn how to prevent accidents before they happen. Since accidents do occur even with the best prevention, students also learn how to prepare for and respond to a variety of emergency situations. They learn basic first aid skills, gain an understanding of how natural disasters occur, and learn how to deal with terrorism and tragic events. SSI also enables students to start a school club and become involved in their community by promoting Red Cross service projects and trainings that help their school, families, and communities. The American Red Cross has offered this program for over eight years in the Nashua, NH area free of charge thanks to funds annually Granted from Oracle Corporation.
