Disaster Services

We respond to disasters in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties, including house and apartment fires the number one disaster in Cleveland floods, tornadoes, transportation accidents, explosions, and other natural and man-made disasters.

We are notified of a disaster by the local safety forces, community agencies, clients and/or families. We are not a government agency, nor government funded, however, we are chartered by Congress to provide disaster victims with relief. When a disaster strikes, we spring into action day or night to provide emergency shelter, food, clothing, replacement of critical medications and eyeglasses, and counseling services.

Red Cross disaster assistance is free and is made possible by generous donations from the American people. Help support our good works locally. Make a financial contribution or become a Disaster Action Team volunteer.
