For the past 95 years, the people of Hawaii have depended on us to respond not only to everyday fires and floods, but every major natural and man-made disaster that has struck our islands, including the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hurricanes Iniki and Iwa, Big Isle earthquake, multiple tsunami, Sacred Falls landslide, New Years and Manoa floods, Kaloko Dam burst, airplane and helicopter crashes, explosions, and hostage situations. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on the aloha spirit and generosity of Hawaii's people to provide critical services to the community. All disaster training, services, and financial assistance to victims is free

Mission: The Red Cross is like no other organization. Our mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. We do this by coming to the aid of disaster victims, teaching people how to save lives, and providing emergency communication between deployed military service members and their families in times of crisis. The American Red Cross is mandated by Congress to respond to every disaster that happens in the United States (70,000 per year or 1 every 8 minutes), yet we receive no federal or state funding for disasters.
