AFTER A DISASTER
After a disaster, communities and families turn to the Red Cross for help—and we stand ready to provide comfort and care—free of charge.
The Red Cross helps disaster victims by providing safe shelter, hot meals, essential relief supplies, emotional support and health services like first aid. Trained Red Cross workers often meet one-on-one with families to develop individual plans and identify available resources to help aid recovery.
Red Cross disaster relief focuses on relieving immediate disaster-caused needs so that families can get back on their feet and resume their lives as quickly as possible. The Red Cross also supports emergency workers, links family members outside the disaster area, and provides blood and blood products to disaster victims.
Emergency Communication Services
All day, every day, the Red Cross connects service members with their families back home when an emergency strikes.
The Red Cross partners with the military aid societies to help service members and their families get emergency financial assistance 24/7.
Information and Referral Services
The Red Cross provides counseling, guidance, information, referrals and other social services for all military personnel and their families.
Before, during and after deployments, the Red Cross provides training, information and support for military members and their families.
