Our corporate volunteer program, Ready When the Time Comes (RWTC), is designed to tap into corporate America’s expertise and desire to help people in need. Or use Ready Rating, where you’ll learn tips and best practices in business so you don’t feel like you’re alone out there.

Many jobs require up to date lifesaving skills because they address health emergencies every day – people such as health care providers, first responders, and lifeguards. Others, including teachers and babysitters, are entrusted with precious young lives that could require aid on a moment’s notice. Those of us who don’t face health emergencies every day can also benefit from Red Cross training. Employees can be trained online, through regularly scheduled community classes, onsite at your location, or the Red Cross can train the trainers in your organization to deliver Red Cross courses.
