Service to Armed Forces

A father explains how his family has benefited from SAF

This service provides emergency communication to a service member in the event of an emergency, critical accident, illness, birth, or death in a service members immediate family.

Through our worldwide communications network, we can communicate with the base or ship where the service person is stationed. All Red Cross social services are provided free of charge.

Today's American Red Cross is keeping pace with the changing military. Featuring the latest in computer and telecommunications technology, the American Red Cross Emergency Service Center delivers around-the-clock emergency communication services to active duty military personnel, and to their families.

While serving 1.4 million active duty personnel, the Red Cross Get To Know Us Before You Need Us campaign reaches out to an additional 1.5 million members of the National Guard and the Reserves living in almost every neighborhood in America.

For military emergencies, please call 1-877-519-5967.
