Disaster Services - Each year, the American Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 disasters, including home fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents, explosions, and other natural and man-made disasters. The most common of these disasters is fires. Although the American Red Cross is not a government agency, its authority to provide disaster relief was formalized in 1905 when the organization was chartered by Congress to provide disaster relief and mitigation. Services to the Armed Forces - The Service to the Armed Forces Program ensures that service members, veterans, and their families have worldwide access to timely and reliable humanitarian services. Both active-duty and community-based military rely on the Red Cross to provide access to vital services such as emergency communications, financial assistance, and information and referral. Health & Safety - American Red Cross training is vital to preparing our community for the everyday disasters that can strike without warning. First Aid, CPR, water safety training, and other Red Cross safety course, taught by skilled Red Cross instructors, are essential in saving lives and providing health information to families, students, and employees. Health, Safety & Community Services provides information and education to help people prevent, prepare for, and cope with emergencies. These courses help make our communities healthier and safer places to live. Nurse Assistant Training - The Nurse Assistant Training Program offers classroom and hands-on clinical/lab training to prepare you for testing and certification as a Certified Nurse Aide by the Virginia Board of Nursing. Youth Services - The American Red Cross Youth Association in the Virginia Region serves teens with a fresh outlook on their community through a combination of service projects, fundraising events, and discussions concerning their local environment. Every other week, the group gets together to talk over present and future plans that give them the opportunity to directly and indirectly serve their local Red Cross and its mission. American Red Cross Clubs are an efficient way to educate the community, while promoting leadership skills to the future generations. Red Cross Clubs work together on four monthly projects provided by the American Red Cross. These projects fall under the categories of Community Disaster Education, Service to Armed Forces, Community Outreach and Youth Mentorship/ Fundraising. In an attempt to maximize productivity and increase awareness, we encourage all youth who would like to volunteer with the American Red Cross, work with their peers in the projects.
