Speaker Series II: Revolutionizing Disaster Response through Technology
A Northern California Coastal Region Speaker Series Event.
As we face the unique challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Red Cross continues to deliver its lifesaving mission: to alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies when and where it's needed most. Though we have all pivoted to a virtual workspace, our technology has made it possible to continue serving our neighbors in the field. We look forward to sharing how we respond to disasters all over the country, deploy emergency resources and manpower, and support sheltering, feeding, and the overall needs of disaster responses big and small with transformational technology.
This online event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

More than 90 large wildfires burned through the West Coast this summer, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate. The Red Cross uses technology to ensure families like Mary and Dustin are safe and cared for during their greatest time of need. Watch their story below.
