What is Red Cross Services?
The American Red Cross program exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. Our volunteers have the exceptional opportunity to provide care through:
Teaching Hands-Only CPR: Volunteers are thoroughly trained. Weekly classes on hands-only CPR are taught to members of the community by program volunteers.
Emergency Preparedness: Volunteers learn about emergency preparedness, First Aid, 72-hour kits, and other life-saving techniques.
Disaster Action Team (DAT): The Disaster Action Team (DAT) responds to local residential emergencies and disasters, such as fires. Volunteers are trained in administering to the needs of disaster victims. This program is available through the Red Cross Chapter.
General Community Service: Additional service opportunities are available at local health care facilities, assisting with other Y-Serve programs, and writing letters to members serving in the Armed Forces.
Volunteer Commitments: We meet 1-3 hours every other week (program meetings, community service, and disaster training).
Hispanic Outreach is now the Cruz Roja program.

Fall Winter Spring Summer
One of my favorite activities we did last year was help with a disaster shelter simulation at UVU's UCCU center. We were able to help prepare the community in case a disaster ever happens in the future in the area. We set up about 500 cots, checked families in, and helped direct them to preparedness workshops and a good meal. It was a huge event! I loved interacting with all the people who came and it was interesting to learn how a Red Cross shelter works!
