The American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula serves the state of Delaware and Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne's and Talbot counties in Maryland. During FY05, volunteers and paid staff responded to 197 disasters throughout our communities, providing disaster relief - free of charge - for 277 families. 17,236 people were trained in lifesaving skills such as CPR and First Aid. And 1,011 emergency communications sent through the Red Cross kept members of the military in touch with their families. More than 265 seniors living independently were given peace of mind through our Lifeline medical alert program. 26,144 people on the Delmarva Peninsula received Community Disaster Education information, teaching them the 5 steps for emergency preparedness. All these services were made possible through the help of more than 2,000 volunteers who make up 97% of the workforce of the American Red Cross. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on valuable donations of talent, time and money to do its humanitarian work.   Marguerite H. Prueitt is the CEO of the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula.  In case of emergency, contact 1-800-777-6620.
