American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its Congressional Charter and the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross Movement, provides relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
To support the mission of the American Red Cross, nearly 1.3 million employees and volunteers serve throughout the United States and its territories, and on military installations around the world. Supported by the resources of a national organization, they form the largest volunteer service and educational force in the nation. They help people prevent, prepare for and cope with emergencies, whether those emergencies involve blood, disaster, social services, or health and safety.
Every year, the Red Cross trains some 11 million people in lifesaving skills. Red Cross first aid, CPR and AED programs are designed to give you the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life. The American Red Cross has been the leader in swimming and lifeguarding since 1914, and we teach preparedness courses to help families and communities prepare for all kinds of emergencies and disasters.

Emergency First Response is the fastest-growing international CPR, AED and first aid training organization. With more than 31,000 instructors worldwide, Emergency First Response is backed by 36 years of experience in the development and delivery of instructional courses, training materials and educational curricula. Emergency First Response courses have gained widespread international acceptance.
Emergency First Response's course curricula are based on patient care standards as published in the American Heart Association Guidelines 2010 Standards for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, and the consensus view of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Working Group of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). ILCOR is an international standards group representing most of the world's major resuscitation organizations.
Focused on training the lay rescuer, the Emergency First Response approach to training builds confidence in lay rescuers and increases their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency by teaching them the skills they need in a non-stressful learning environment. Participants are also given as much practice as necessary to master and retain these skills.
