HEALTH & SAFETY

When medical emergencies happen, basic lifesaving skills can mean the difference between life and death.  A trusted leader in health and safety education for nearly 100 years, the Red Cross teaches people to save lives when seconds count, and helps participants lead safer, healthier lives.
