March is Red Cross Month. It is a time to recognize and celebrate the “everyday heroes” at work in our communities everyday, making it possible for the Red Cross to fulfill its mission to provide comfort and alleviate suffering around the world.

The American Red Cross Capital Region Chapter teamed with the City of Sacramento Fire Department and the Oak Park Neighborhood Association on Saturday to launch “Team FireStopper,” a fire safety and education program aimed to reduce the occurrences and impacts of house fires.
March is Red Cross Month, and throughout the month, the American Red Cross Capital Region Chapter will offer free Hands-Only CPR training sessions and Automated External Difibulator (AED) demonstrations as part of Save-a-Life Saturdays!
