The Hawaii Red Cross is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and responds to disasters statewide every 3-4 days. All Red Cross disaster assistance is free. Beyond responding to disaster victims with caring and compassion, the mission of the American Red Cross is about saving lives, and the Hawaii State Chapter does just that by training over 30,000 people per year how to save lives through CPR, First Aid, Lifeguarding, swimming, nurse aide, babysitting, and pet first aid throughout the state.
The Red Cross also provides emergency communications between deployed Hawaii military service members and their loved ones during times of crisis, and provides international tracing services for those torn apart by war or disaster. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it depends on public contributions to help others.
