Abstract

The American Red Cross has prepared people to save lives through health and safety education and training. From first aid and CPR training to swimming and life guarding, disaster education, HIV/AIDS education and Babysitter's Training, American Red Cross Preparedness programs help people lead safer and healthier lives. The Red Cross constantly strives to respond to the preparedness concerns of Americans at home, in school and in the workplace. Innovative programs also include teaching lay persons and professionals how to use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to save victims of sudden cardiac arrest.

Publications

The American National Red Cross provides local chapters with instructor guides, textbooks, and logistical support for training instructors and developing educational and service programs for their communities. A variety of pamphlets are available upon request from each local unit.
