SERVICES to the ARMED FORCES MISSION

 

In keeping with the American Red Cross

mission of helping people in crises,

Services to the Armed Forces will

keep American families in touch with their

military loved ones around the world.

 

The American Red Cross links members of the U.S. Armed Forces with their families during a crisis.  Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, the Red Cross quickly sends emergency communications to deployed service members on behalf of their family.  Military members can have peace of mind knowing that when they are on a mission, in training or stationed far from home-and leaving cell phones and emails behind-they are still connected to home

The Services to the Armed Forces Program provides members of the U.S.  Armed Forces and their families with the following primary services --

  • Reporting and Communications:  Firelands Chapter will assist Service Members and their families send emergency messages regarding the death or serious illness of a family member, the birth of a child or other family emergencies.

  • The Red Cross collaborates with Military Aid Societies in providing financial assistance when an urgent personal or family crisis arises.

  • Information and Referral to additional community resources.

      Additional services include --

  • Services for Veterans

  • Counseling

  • Disaster Relief

  • Health Services and related training

  • Trained volunteers to assist in the delivery of Armed Forces Emergency Services or in a variety of Red Cross Services.

We are just a phone call away.  Our Red Cross worldwide emergency communications network operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
