In addition, the Red Cross provides preparedness programs, training classes, checklists and mobile apps; the Red Cross install free smoke alarms and educates the community about home fire safety and fire escape plans; the Red Cross collects, processes and distributes about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply; the Red Cross provides humanitarian support to military members, veterans and their families around the clock and across the globe under a trusted symbol.
