Your American Red Cross in Utah prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors, to help neighbors and communities in need—down the street, across the country, and around the world. It is a congressionally chartered organization but receives no line-item government funding. Instead, it relies on the generosity of people like you to carry out its mission. Thank you for your support.

Here are some of the ways the American Red Cross in Utah is working to help you:

Disaster Response - Firefighter

Disaster Response Services

Your American Red Cross in Utah is among the first to respond to local disasters, providing humanitarian aid such as food, clothing, shelter, emotional support and health services to those in need. We also deploy volunteers to disasters across the nation when needed.

Service to the Armed Forces

Services to the Armed Forces (SAF)

Your American Red Cross in Utah keeps military families connected to one another in times of crisis through emergency communications. We support families left behind, assist wounded warriors in military hospitals, and provide emergency support and travel assistance for military personnel in difficult times.

Health & Safety

Preparedness, Health and Safety

Your American Red Cross in Utah prepares individuals businesses, and schools to effectively prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. From first aid and CPR to disaster preparedness education, your American Red Cross leads the way.

Be Prepared Family

Disaster Preparedness

When we aren’t responding to disasters, we are helping people get ready for them. During disasters, vital resources will likely be unavailable, so preparing ahead of time allows you to minimize the effects of disasters and speed up the recovery process.
