Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC)

The Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC) serves all three Islands. The four main programmes of the CIRC are: Disaster Management, First Aid & Aquatics, Child Protection & Sexuality Education and the Thrift Shop (which offers affordable shopping and provides for the most vulnerable access to these goods free of cost. See the Shopping chapter). The CIRC trains volunteers to work within the communities, and works directly to empower communities through the training of Community Emergency Response Teams. The headquarters location also serves as a hurricane shelter and is usually the first to open when there is a threat to Grand Cayman. The CIRC is always in need of volunteers and donations to the cause.

First Aid, CPR & Water Rescue Courses

They offer the American Red Cross (ARC) syllabus and certification in the following courses: Infant/ Child/Adult First Aid, CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course; Lifeguard Training, Pro Responder CPR and Basic Water Rescue. Although the American Red Cross does not set a lower age limit on any of their courses, unless your child can complete the full range of skills they will not be certified. They will however receive a certificate of attendance. The minimum age they recommend is 14.

HIV, AIDS, Gender & Sexuality Training

The CIRC offers a basic information course on HIV and AIDS, as well as courses on gender and sexuality, healthy sexuality and sexualisation, and HIV and AIDS stigma and discrimination. The course is aimed at children 16 and up, but they can modify a course for children aged 12-15 with some advance notice.
