The American Red Cross responds to an emergency every 8 minutes
No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross goes wherever we're needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most. Each disaster is different but we adapt our resources to the needs of the people we serve. Those resources include, but are not limited to: Overnight Shelter Stays, Distribution of Emergency Supplies, Health & Mental Health Contacts, Meals and Snacks, Trained Red Cross Volunteers and Employees and Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs). North Louisiana was impacted by several floods and half a dozen tornadoes that hit various communities across our area in 2018. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 home fire emergencies each year. In North Louisiana, we respond to more than 600 each year.

The Red Cross helps members of the military, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to, the challenges of military service. Every day, the American Red Cross provides 24/7 global emergency communication services and support in military and veteran health care facilities across the country and around the world.

The Red Cross has served more than 1 million military families since 9/11:
Volunteers provide home comforts and critical services on bases and in military hospitals around the world
We support military families during deployments and emergencies
We continue serving our nation's veterans after their service ends

At the American Red Cross, training people how to respond to and prepare for emergencies is our core mission. We offer a range of health and safety classes that teach you new skills, keep you knowledgeable, confident and ready to respond in almost any emergency situation. With courses to cover all key areas of training, available online and in classrooms across the country, Red Cross classes deliver the training you seek, when, where and how you need it.
