Your Red Cross is here to help you prevent, prepare for and respond to life-threatening emergencies by providing the following services:
When we aren’t responding to disasters, we are helping people get ready for them. During disasters, vital resources will likely be unavailable, so preparing ahead of time allows you to minimize the effects of disasters and speed up the recovery process. The Red Cross Tennessee Region has developed a variety of materials to educate the public about how to stay safe and prepare.
When disaster strikes, the Red Cross is ready to provide a place to sleep, warm meals, clothing, emotional support and hope to those affected.
We could have just the opportunity you’re looking for ... whether it's training to respond to disasters, supporting a blood drive, delivering messages to members of our military, or connecting families displaced by conflict, we hope you'll join our mission.
We collect blood every day from donors who help ensure a safe supply of blood when it’s needed.
We offer training in first aid, CPR/AED, swimming and water safety, care giving and more.
Service to the Armed Forces
The American Red Cross provides around-the-clock emergency communications between members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their loved ones. Red Cross assistance is required to verify family emergencies that require the presence of the service member. We also provide family counseling, social service referrals and may provide financial assistance in emergencies.
Home Fire Campaign
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.
With more than a century of experience, the American Red Cross works with the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network to meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
