Since 1881, people have turned to the American Red Cross for emergency services. Today, 1.2 million trained and dedicated volunteers, young and old, are helping their neighbors across the country every day. Although it is not a government agency, the American Red Cross is chartered by Congress to provide special services to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and to disaster victims.


The mission of the American Red Cross is to improve the quality of human life; to enhance self-reliance and concern for others; and to help people avoid, prepare for, and cope with emergencies. The Coweta Chapter of the American Red Cross has been accomplishing this mission since 1917. For general inquiries email to:

First Aid and CPR Courses

For more than 80 years, the American Red Cross has been teaching people of all ages that they can do something to help when an emergency strikes - wherever they happen to be.

We have a variety of first aid and CPR courses designed for people who have never had any experience responding to medical emergencies. Red Cross programs help ease the fears many people have about dealing with an emergency when one does occur.
