The Red Cross has been the go-to source for more than a century for information, skills and confidence to act in an emergency, at home, in school and in the workplace. Every year, thousands of people across Oregon and Southwest Washington enroll in Red Cross health and safety classes, helping to make our communities safer.
Many jobs require up-to-date lifesaving skills such as First Aid and CPR to address health emergencies – 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, including First Aid, AED and CPR training. The Red Cross can provide the information and skills needed to prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
