"The quicker it is is going to be for our agents to to verify that emergency in gift any nation to the chain of command and we know some of these instruments situations can be very time sensitive right so you wanna ensure that you have the servicemembers first and last name rank branch of service if possible. The last four of that service members social in data as well as the date of birth the military unit address. Is there a phone number if this service member is deployed down rank. Is there a phone number to the red detachment if the service member just happens to be. Tdy or one of those geographical assignments where there is a phone number. Is there a phone number available. Also we're gonna need to know the name of the family member that emergency is involving. And what relationship is this family. Member family member contact information because this family member could be making their own medical decisions. The nature of the emergency is is. Is this person in the hospital is it is time sensitive is critical. Life expectancy an issue. Here where can the emergency be. Verify the contact number for the hospital. The funeral home is there a nurse. We can speak to the physician. That's attending to their family member. All of these are key pieces of information that the individual is going to need will make contact the hero care center in a give them more information. You can share the during that initial call the quicker. It is for us to get this information verified so that we can get the emergency message to the servicemembers chain of command and they can determine if the service member will be able to take emergency. Wow that's super helpful. So it's kinda think sometimes. No news is good news or less is more but obviously in this case especially red red cross. Notification more is more so let me let me recap make. Sure i got this because i was trying to capture it so an emergency happens a family member or a neighbor or whoever anybody can call and when they call they need to have i for the servicemember they need first last name rank branch date of birth last four of the social security. If possible if that person has a phone number the servicemember address down range the name of the family member and the relationship dealing with the emergency family member contact info nature emergency and wear that. Emergency can be verified. Get it all you got it. Alright look at me taking notes. I wrote it all out. 'cause i guess i wouldn't have thought of some of those things but having that in your hand or on your phone or on standby just knowing those things. Obviously he's gonna speed the process up because it's gonna especially what you mentioned you wanna if it's time sensitive or you know this is. This is really important in this. Could be a truly a life or death situation. Yes you mentioned your time as an air force leader. I also said in that role a many times. I would always encourage my my family members. My spouses take a little note. Cards postcards creative magnets refrigerator because when emergencies happen often times you know our brains are all over the rights. We know it by memory you know. We tend to forget so have that information on the refrigerator. Go ahead and share that information with mom. Dad mother-in-law father in law uncle ever your circle of support. Es share that information so win. Something happens because unfortunately we know things are gonna happen. That information is readily available. I so glad you mentioned that. Because i literally sitting here as i was writing those things down i was thinking like especially the the last four of the social security if possible obviously most military spouses have the last four of the social of Memorized in on the tip of are much easier than our own or even like i drive through the pharmacy in there like. What's your daughter's date. I'm like oh hang on a minute. And and that's just a normal wednesday night even like in a crisis or in like when your brain is just like overwhelmed because it really goes into that fight or flight survival mode of like this. Huge crisis is happening. And i'm trying to get a hold of my service member. My best friend my life partner. Whatever that is and you know our brains are like no. I don't have access in my brain of what the last four of the social isn't so. I'm so glad you mentioned like write that down. Have it handy for me. I was thinking a no on my phone that i can share with someone or screen shot and text. That's really really good information. And i personally think that should be all of those pre-deployment briefings like here's a note carter. Here's a magnet. Fill it out. Stick it where it needs to go so that's really good. I love that so much All right well so. My next question is one. I also get a lot. As a military is season season spouse. I guess is what they call us now. Senior season been around the block a time or two. If this emergency happens does the red cross pay Servicemember home so the red cross does not pay to send the servicemember home however we work hand in hand with all of our military aid societies to weaken help our service members apply for financial assistance through our aid societies. Right in do you mind sharing the names of some of those aid societies that maybe even if they You know you guys can't necessarily pay descend servicemember home. But what are some other organizations that be can provide some financial assistance or logistical support for that so each branch of service has an aid society so we have army emergency relief. We have navy emergency relief. We even our coast guard have eight society as able to provide for financial assistance..

Life talk radio. Thank you for having me. Cherie too i am excited looking forward to argus goshen undoubtedly and clearly you have a lot of experience empowering military spouses just based on that really impressive bio we just shared and now you continue your journey with the american red cross solicitor in a little bit more about what the red cross can do for military families. Tell us a little bit about how you got connected with the american red cross. Sure enough to so in twenty thirteen. We pcs to honolulu. Hawaii and i am sure you know. The challenges of military spouse is trying to maintain a career while always having to relocate every two to three years prior to relocating to hawaii. I was fortunate to be a part of another national nonprofit in various locations for abroad about eight years. But here i was in hawaii. Twenty thirteen Looking floor okay. What's next for me in my career. What am i gonna do of it in hang out on the beach. Every day and i was climbing. Dimon had one saturday morning. And as i got to the top of diamond head i looked across the ridge line and i saw the building across the street in the signed said american red cross. So is that four minute. And i pondered it just to to reflect on what has been my experience as a militarised spouse with the american red cross and i thought back. I had no personal family experiences. No we career My husband's grandmother passed away. But we didn't have to use ray across. I couldn't remember you know helping other military families utilize across programs in services especially on the multiple deployments that you know we've had over the years and so i got home that day. I google redcrossblood lulu. I saw that. They had a number of volunteer opportunities as well as career opportunities to support our military and veteran. Communities i apply for a paid position was afforded the opportunity to interview received the in actually got the position and here we are seven and a half years later another. Pcs move under our belt been able to stay connected with the red cross in both Paid and volunteer positions. What a fun on ramp. that started with. I guess i could hang out the beach and climbed this mountain. But i'll climb mountain and then it just kind of as they say escalated quickly with your connection with the american right across and just shy of a decade later. Here we are so congratulations on your success in a obviously you're doing a great work with this wonderful organization And so as a military family. I would say many of us. Don't wanna think that for emergencies will happen to us but unfortunately they can happen at any time so you would you share with us. How the american red cross comes alongside military families during those emergencies or the eucharist cross. Is there to support our military families. Three hundred sixty five days out of the year twenty four hours a day in the event of emergency. We have agents at our hero here center. Who are there to gather information about the emergency. We also verify that emergency by reaching out to medical authorities police department social services whatever agency or entity can verify that emergency for us and then of course we deliver that emergency communications Message to our servicemembers chain of command. Okay well let's talk a little bit more about the kinds of emergencies that people might face. What kind of emergencies would probably quote qualify as red cross message so those emergencies that will qualify as a red cross message would have to involve a death or illness or severe illness. Urgent time critical family emergency of course birth notifications because we do know. Babies are born while servicemembers are deployed yup emergency financial assistance in ne-. Okay well thank you clarify that. Because i know that sometimes as a military spouse and a former f. r. g. leader and all that kind of stuff people like this is going on and just having a general knowledge of what's the next step you know we just need to contact chain of command directly or is this kind of a bigger deal that needs to go through the official channels of american red cross. Should the service member have the option to be able to come home or come back from wherever they're at whether that's overseas deployment a major field exercises etcetera so We've talked about kind of the military family component there. But would you also give us a little bit more insight as to who's eligible to call the red cross to reach a servicemember if there's a crisis and walk us through those steps in what the specific procedure looks like. So anyone is eligible to call the american ray across initiator ray across message. But it's important for your listeners. To note that it order to initiate a message be emergency has to involve a core group what we call. Immediate family Anyone can call if if there was an emergency. That happened in. My neighbor was aware of that emergency. My neighbor could call the american hostile initiate that re- across message but we have to ensure that that message involve immediate family member and the american red cross in deal d. Identifies immediate family. Members adds a spouse children.

The american red cross was founded on may twenty first eighteen eighty one. I give special mentioned to the american red cross. Because they were the first national organization that explicitly had emission beyond providing aid and comfort to wounded soldiers and prisoners of war over time. The red cross expanded into more and more countries in one thousand nine one. The very first nobel prize was given to henry. Do not for his work. In establishing the red cross and the geneva convention at the start of world war one there were forty five national red cross societies around the world world war. One was the first great test of the red cross. They facilitated many of the programs for prisoners of war including sending letters packages and also arrange prisoner exchanges. They also catalogued violations of the geneva convention and brought up the complaints to the governments of both sides. They also were the first to protest the use of chemical warfare which was put into widespread use for the first time during world war one in one thousand nine hundred nine after the conclusion of the war a separate organization which is now called the international federation of red cross and red crescent societies or ifrc was formed this organization works alongside the international committee of the red cross but it is a separate group as the red cross expanded. In many muslim countries such as egypt and turkey they adopted the crescent symbol instead of the cross. The cross in the red cross is actually not intended to be religious adopted from the swiss flag to represent neutrality and not as a christian symbol nonetheless because of the religious overtones the crescent was used and in iran. They used a red lion and sun symbol. Which has since gone into disuse after the iranian revolution in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine in world war two. The red cross served a similar function as in world war one. However the german red cross was often uncooperative and didn't allow the red cross access to concentration camps which the germans considered internal affairs not subject to the geneva convention. Also the soviet union and japan had not signed the geneva convention and we're not bound to its.

Disaster response is that things are gonna change very quickly so obviously you have kind of a macro level of providing setting up the program to be able to provide financial assistance to the people who've been affected by typhoon but then how that happens will vary from place to place so it was kind of taking it one step at a time. I remember once. I got to guam. Providence would really gave me a little bit of or helped me settle my nerves. Was i met the chapter of the philippines. Red cross staff there the volunteers who were there and they were just wonderful people and it was amazing to see that again people who are taking some time off work or were students but they wanted to help and support and so they were ready to kind of get to work so that was.

"That's those are that the scale where that local red cross has requested that supporting we need the bigger finally to come in and help us out And usually different red crosses across the globe have kind of different expertise or still sets. An american red cross was always keen partner in supporting our global family so with the philippines at that point one of the big programs that was being implemented in the response. Operation was a financial assistance program. Our cash program so this literally giving money financial financial assistance to affect operations and part of that part of why we do that is again because it just provides flexibility for people to recover in the way they need to you and so that is an expertise that american red cross can bring to the table so our team immediately. When that support was requested we answered that call on in started. We have a roster of volunteers and also staff who are trained in different areas. And so when that specific skill set is called floor. We check in with both our staff in our volunteers to see who's available to deploy. Are you ready to go to the philippines. So in the philippines when i when i deployed philippines at that point i wasn't part of our response team yet but i was in our response teams roster as a staff member got it. So let's say you get the back call to co two to the philippines right and This is your first deployment. Tell us how you were feeling and like what was going through your head of actually being deployed you know It's like when a soldier gets there. First deployment nerve wracking i can imagine. Can you walk us through what that was lake. Yeah it was definitely nerve racking. I also remember that. There was appointed before i deployed where we still wearing by was gonna deploy or not so while we were not sure i. This was during a couple of weeks before christmas time. So i remember i had already booked ticket to mexico and i told my mom. Yeah i'm going to be there. And then when i got the confirmation that you're going to deploy i called my mom and they're you know i'm only going to be there for two days and then i'm gonna fly to the beans it is. I will say it's it's it's nerve wracking. I don't think it changes from the first reno response to now a couple of Response operations. I've i've supported in it's always nerve racking and it's you know you're you're trying to imagine what am i gonna wanna. What am i going to see. How am i going to help. But i think what gave me peace of mind as we had a big team. They're not just american red cross team but again the the global network of the red cross And i you know. I knew my team sending me there. It's because they have confidence. I can do the job. And i've always been you know someone who who learns by doing and i can figure it out. So there's there's a comfort in always having of being nervous. Because i think it keeps you on your toes but at the same time you shouldn't let it be like a debilitating fear to the point where you know you backtrack. But there's always that fear of that known. But i was if i don't work for disaster response organization if i don't understand what it's like that how can i continue growing here. One of the courts are always go to is like. If you're nervous about something that means you care right you care enough to be nervous so you care so much about doing the best job you can. And that's why you know you had feelings feelings of anxiety that Were percolating so talk us through you. Get on that plane from mexico. Christmas time to the philippines. You land in manila. I assume or somewhere around there. what next what. Walk us through what that was like..
