American Red Cross Bay Area trained instructors conduct free non-certificate personal preparedness courses for neighborhood and community residents; agency staff and clients; school teachers, staff, parents, and administrators; and local business personnel. The American Red Cross also offers a host-led course option (see FAQ for details).

  • Courses are FREE.
  • Content focuses on knowledge, skills and actions needed for personal preparedness—wherever and whenever disaster strikes.
