about us
For over 100 years, the American Red Cross in Arizona proudly has delivered on our mission, helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. As the nation’s premier emergency preparedness and response organization, the Red Cross is there through every imaginable crisis – from home fires to blizzards, wildfires to monsoons – helping our community members. Since its founding, the organization has expanded its services while maintaining its mission. Today, patients needing lifesaving blood transfusions, parents learning CPR, members of the military deployed overseas, families separated from their loved ones by armed conflict, and many more turn to the Red Cross every second of every day for training, help and support. And the Red Cross responds. Arizona highlights from 2016 • Responded to 742 local disasters, of which approximately 95% involved home fires • Assisted 1,078 families / 3,409 individuals • Trained 38,701 individuals in CPR, first aid, AED, Babysitting and Family Caregiving, Aquatics, community disaster education and other life-saving classes • Offered Service to the Armed Forces assistance to over 16,600 members of our military family • Worked with the International Red Cross and Red Crescent societies to link families separated by armed conflict, natural disaster or civil unrest in their home countries, and offered International Humanitarian Law classes • Collected and distributed donations from more than 34,000 blood and platelet donors through the Red Cross Arizona Blood Services Region and conducted approximately 2000 mobile blood drives
