American Red Cross in Okinawa is primarily for the military members and their families. We serve the members in many ways, not only with emergency communications. Our volunteers help in the base schools, post offices, dental clinics, medical clinics, several departments in the US Naval Hospital Okinawa, and other organizations on the bases. We also joined 3rd Dental Battalion Command in offering the Dental Training Program, and the US Naval Hospital for the Medical Assistant Training Program and Pharmacy Technician Program.
American Red Cross on Camp Foster covers all the Marine bases, Fort Buckner, Camp Lester and Naha Port.
American Red Cross on Kadena Air Base covers the Air Force, the Army Bases, Camp Shields and White Beach.
Disaster strikes without warning, and here on Okinawa, we are particularly vulnerable to various forces of nature. From typhoons to earthquakes, fires to flooding, being prepared is the best way to assure your family's safety. Visit the Red Cross for relevant information such as preparedness tips, weather updates and the current TCCOR level.
