Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.
When disaster strikes, the Red Cross is ready to provide a place to sleep, warm meals, clothing, emotional support and hope to those affected.
The American Red Cross is launching a nationwide campaign to reduce the number of home fire deaths and injuries by 25% over the next five years through the Home Fire Preparedness Safety Campaign.
The Red Cross will come to you and your group to give a free preparedness presentation tailored specifically for your needs. We also offer a variety of presentations geared especially for our community’s youth.
Topics include fire safety, general preparedness, preparing for a pandemic flu and more.
Bilingual speakers are available and thanks to the generosity of individuals, companies and foundations, all community disaster education is free of charge.
We offer training in first aid, CPR/AED, swimming and water safety, care giving and more.
Since 1979, the American Red Cross has been providing first aid services at public festivals, sporting events and concerts across the area! Our team of trained volunteers is the emergency first aid front line for almost 2 million guests who attend or participate in these events.
If you are planning an event and you want the peace of mind that your guests will be safe, let our trained and experience staff assist and advise you with your needs!
The Red Cross helps members of the military, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to, the challenges of military service.
