Health & Safety Training

Red Cross programs help people lead safer and healthier lives. We offer CPR, First Aid, and AED training as well as swimming and lifeguarding lessons. The Red Cross has taught 59,322 people life saving skills in classes throughout the region. The courses we offer to businesses, schools and individuals prepare people to save lives.
Real Life Story
The importance of these services is evident to Shawn Dunning, one of our local Red Cross volunteers. He came upon a man lying unconscious on the sidewalk in Washington, DC not too long ago. A crowd was gathering, but Shawn was the only person who knew what to do. “I was able to save his life. When I called the ER later to find out how he was, the nurse said to me, ‘He’s stable. You did good.’”
