The Red Cross movement began on a battlefield. Today, that same spirit is present wherever American troops are deployed and anxious families wait at home. The American Red Cross promises to be there whenever or wherever our help is needed. At one time or another, all military personnel and their family members will probably benefit from knowing about and using Red Cross services.

American Red Cross Emergency Services (AFES) are available to all members of the armed services, and to their families. Both active duty and community-based military can count on the Red Cross to provide emergency communications, emergency financial assistance, counseling, veterans assistance and aid in the field where Red Cross workers are deployed to serve with America's military.

In the Bay Area communities of San Francisco, Marin, Solano, Contra Costa, Alameda and San Mateo counties call: 800-660-4272, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

The American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter Armed Forces Emergency Services provides briefings to military personnel and their families about the services available to them through the Red Cross. To schedule a briefing please send us an email or call (707) 423-3737.
