When a family loses its home to a fire or flood, local Red Cross volunteers are there to help, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
California residents face the possibility of a wide range of disasters, including earthquakes, home fires, wildland fires, floods, mudslides, even tsunamis. Knowing what to do in an emergency can save lives. Help us to help you, your family, friends, neighbors, employees and others to be prepared.

We provide family emergency communications and verifications, as well as financial assistance to eligible military members, their families, and veterans.
We help trace family members separated during war and armed conflicts.
We offer a free swimming lesson to children and a bi-lingual water safety presentation to their parents to help eliminate swimming tragedies.
