Dental Assistant Training Program

3rd Dental Battalion The American Red Cross and 3rd Dental Battalion are offering the opportunity for free dental assistant training to Red Cross volunteers. During this training, Red Cross volunteers learn the basic skills necessary to work alongside dentists at various clinics on the island. It includes TWO (2) weeks of intense classroom training followed by 650 hours of chair-side assisting at one of the six Naval dental clinics. This is a non-licensing course. An interview of the candidates will take place prior to the start of the program, and, due to limited space in the dental clinics, approximately 16 candidates will be selected into the program (14 accepted plus 2 on standby). Please take a look at the information packet for more details.

(Additional candidates may be selected if applicants are willing to drive to Hansen or Schwab. Please inform Red Cross if you prefer Hansen or Schwab)

Home Fire Safety & Prevention

fire1 The most effective way to protect yourself and your home from fire is to identify and remove fire hazards. 65 percent of house fire deaths occur in homes with no working smoke alarms. During a home fire, working smoke alarms and a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives.

Be Red Cross Ready

  • If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL for help.
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. Test them every month and replace the batteries at least once a year.
  • Talk with all household members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.
