The Cape Cod and Islands Chapter of the American Red Cross has provided emergency response service and health and safety training to the residents of Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard for 90 years, since 1917.
The American Red Cross is the primary agency for mass care emergency relief, Disaster Relief Services, Armed Forces Emergency Services, and Health and Safety Training Services.
All disaster services to victims, police, firefighters and all others responding to emergencies are provided free of charge. Training is free to Red Cross volunteers. Our resources are paid only through charitable donations, grants and in-kind support from individuals, foundations and businesses, locally.
The Red Cross is a critical part of the emergency response network on Cape Cod and the Islands. Our volunteers respond, teach, and care for our community when the need is greatest 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. We are here when help is needed most.
