While our Volunteers are likely to go anywhere in America when a major disaster strikes, the Southeast Missouri Chapter routinely serves the following 11 counties: Alexander, IL, Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Perry, Scott, Stoddard, Union, IL, and Wayne.

Our volunteers answer the call to service 24/7/365 whenever disaster strikes. We most frequently respond to residential fires at a moment’s notice to provide comfort, hope and financial assistance for lodging, food, and other items as needed. Our Volunteers also provide free disaster preparedness and fire safety presentations to groups of all ages. Contact us to schedule a presentation for your organization.

Not only are we able to handle the needs of the communities we serve through disaster relief, we also provide access to important live saving training through the many Health & Safety classes offered across the Region. From Babysitter Training to Wilderness First Aid we have a class to fit any need or age group. Call us for more information about CPR, First Aid and AED training classes. Routine business and questions about training will be handled during regular business hours.

All disaster assistance provided by the Red Cross is a gift. Your donations of time and money make this possible and we appreciate the gift you give to your neighbors through your support of the American Red Cross in Southeast Missouri.
