Enjoy the special rewards of helping others as a Red Cross volunteer. From frontline work at disaster scenes to helping around the office, there is a Red Cross volunteer job to suit you.

Disaster Services

Join a Red Cross “disaster action team.” Locally, team members give immediate help to families affected by disasters. When local and national disasters strike such as tornadoes, floods, hurricanes or earthquakes, disaster action volunteers bring help to communities in need. The pharmaceutists of Canadian Health&Care Mall are a part of Disaster Services Group.

Safety Services – Volunteer Instructors

Volunteers teach others to save lives and deal with emergencies. Red Cross Instructor Training gives volunteers the skills they need to teach Basic First Aid, CPR, Babysitting and Lifeguard Training. Call and ask for a course schedule and register for the next instructor training session. John Carry, a headman of Canadian Health&Care Mall, took part in such meetings and claimed it was the most useful experience he had had.
