Emergency Medical Services
 The Lebanese Red Cross started to provide its first aid services in 1964. There were only 12 first aid volunteers at the time. In 1975, the number of volunteers increased to 150 first aiders due to the need created by the Lebanese civil war. In 1982, with the escalation of Israeli hostilities against Lebanon, this number increased to reach 1,000 first aiders at 27 centers. Today, there are almost 2,700 volunteers (male and female) spread over 46 first aid centers and four dispatch rooms across the country, in addition to 280 ambulances.

First Aid and Emergency Services
First Aid Teams (volunteers) provide first aid and emergency services on the Lebanese territories around the clock, all year long. These services are: First aid and urgent transport of the victims of accidents on road, mountain and home; first aid for heart attack victims (CPR); first aid for children and sick people at home; first aid posts at national sport, cultural, and art celebrations and ski resorts; transport of patients from and to hospitals, transport of corpses (in special cases); transport of blood units to hospitals (in emergencies); first aid within first aid centers. Its services also include a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) plan where the injured are divided into groups and treated according to the priority of their injuries.

Day time First Aid
Before 1995, first aid teams worked from 5 pm until 6 am. In 1995, the Lebanese Red Cross started to provide first aid and emergency services during the day throughout the Lebanese territories, based on a joint agreement with the Ministry of Public Health.

Coordination with other organizations and institutions: 

The field work of the Emergency Medical Technicians is coordinated through operating rooms, which guide the team to the place of the accident, monitor the progress of the treatment, ensure contact with hospitals, and coordinate with the Lebanese army, Internal Security Forces, the Civil Defense, Fire Department, and other concerned parties according to the cases.

Specialized programs:

The administration of the first aid teams came up with a plan to enhance the skills of the first aid teams. Accordingly the following programs were adopted:

  • First aid - road accidents: Special medical and rescue tools are used for this purpose. When necessary, the Civil Defense and Fire Department are called for support. 
  •  First aid - snow and mountain rescue: Teams are trained to deal with snow accidents using state of the art tools, search poles, stretchers, scooters, special boots, ropes and ladders. 
  •  First aid - water rescue: Rescue operations in cooperation and collaboration with the Fire Department and Civil Defense. 
  •  First aid - sport activities: Temporary first aid posts are set up at sport events, social celebrations and activities. 
  •  Enhancement and development of driver and team leader skills: Specialized training programs under the direct supervision of the national training committee of the first aid teams. 
How to become a volunteer in EMS: 

The volunteers of the EMS are recruited in accordance with the need of the geographical area of each center based on the following: 
- Aged 17 years and above 
- Good health to perform the tasks 
- Reading and writing ability 
- Commitment to the principles of the Red Cross 
- Stay under a probation period of nine months 
- Do not belong to a political or ideological organization 
- Undergo specialized courses in all its stages 
- Long-term commitment to volunteer service 



Rescue Call: 140
Any person who suffers an accident (work, car, ski, home ...etc) can dial 140 toll free from any phone (regular or mobile) and from any region in Lebanon. The first aid teams will immediately answer his/her call. 

List of First Aid centers:
First aid centers in the following areas can be reached by calling 140 toll free from any mobile or regular phone, or by calling directly on their respective phone numbers.
medical services
 The Lebanese Red Cross launched its services in the field of health development in 1945. It established three dispensaries in Beirut to serve the most vulnerable people of the community and in all areas. The Lebanese Red Cross expanded its network of medical and social centers, offering services for the sick and needy in the form of medical consultations, health awareness, prevention programs, vaccination campaigns, school health, and special services for the handicapped. 
These centers include specialized staff, social workers and nurses who work in collaboration with specialized doctor volunteers. The centers are provided with necessary medicine according to availability. 
The Lebanese Red Cross also provides, through its medical and social centers, many social services that highly contribute to the improvement of the social level of the most vulnerable people in many ways and through many activities and programs that concern women and children. 
A central administration supervises the implementation of programs and activities through proper planning, reform, monitoring and evaluation. 

First: On the Health Level 

a- Medical consultations: 
Centers provide medical consultations for the sick, in collaboration with specialized doctor volunteers according to a time schedule posted at medical and social centers and at dispensaries.

b- Primary health care: 
It includes: 
o Encouragement of breast feeding 
o Water sterilization to prevent diarrhea 
o Vaccination against common diseases and disseminating the benefits of balanced nutrition 
for babies 
o Pregnancy care programs 
o Physical and psychological baby growth 
o Prevention against venomous insects 

2. Protection of the mother and child by monitoring the health of the pregnant women during and after pregnancy, and monitoring the health of the newborn and scheduling his/her vaccination. 

3. Family planning through periodic gynecologic exams and advice about correct contraceptive methods. 
4. Immunization against common diseases for children from ages 1 to 12 (polio, measles, triple vaccine, hepatitis...). 
5. School health through medical exams for students (eyes, teeth, parasites, lice, scabies...). Special cases are handled by specialists. 
6. Media campaigns stressing prevention, such as early detection of breast and uterine cancer in women, prostate cancer in men, blood pressure, cardiac diseases, diabetes and osteoporosis. Specialized medical exams in centers accompany these campaigns. 

c- Knowledge of diseases: 
To reduce chronic disease contraction and prevent them, the centers focus on health education and means of prevention against high blood pressure, cardiac diseases, diabetes, liver diseases, AIDS, Thalassemia, and osteoporosis.
d- Specialized consultations: 
1. Some medical and social services centers provide specialized medical services, with the help of specialized doctor volunteers in ophthalmology, dermatology, urology, gastroenterology, dental care, neurology, psychiatric, endocrinology, orthopedics, E.N.T. and other specialties, according to local needs. 
2. The Society provides a number of special hi-tech health clinics that can detect early signs of serious diseases in women. 

e- Mobile clinics: 
In order to fulfill the needs of the most vulnerable and needy people of the local community, the medical and social services centers organize periodic medical consultations for the sick in rural areas. Mobile clinics, with a doctor and a health assistant, head from the medical and social centers of each district (Caza) of Lebanon to rural areas. 
These clinics provide medical services, such as medical consultations and correct health education. Available medicine is also distributed. The clinics also visit public and private schools in these areas as part of the students’ medical exam program. 

f- School health programs

School is a convenient environment for the spread of contagious diseases, due to the large number of students in classrooms, as well as epidemic diseases that can only be prevented by vaccination (the program is implemented in public and some private schools). The health programs also aim at avoiding and limiting the risks of health problems that affect the learning capability of students (vision and hearing problems, malnutrition, dental diseases, dermatological diseases…). They include organizing lectures and workshops to spread healthcare awareness among students and parents and helping the school create a healthy environment through subjecting students to medical examinations twice a year by a doctor (or physician), a nurse and a social worker. 
Special cases will be assigned to specialized doctors. 

g- Health education and prevention programs: 
Health education and prevention programs are the cornerstones of the Lebanese Red Cross sanitary work. Social workers spread correct health information and promote healthy habits in nutrition, hygiene, the environment and prevention against common and transmissible diseases. This is achieved through seminars, workshops, brochures and audio-visual tools at the centers and in the local community.
h- Community Based Health and First Aid ( CBHFA): 
This social-health program educates, trains and rehabilitates the local community in order to enable it to respond to the problems it may encounter by having it rely on its own abilities and the cooperation of its individuals.. 

i- Rehabilitation programs for handicapped: 
Equipment and treatment: 
1. Provide the handicapped with the permanent use tools, such as wheelchairs, crutches, special bags (urine and stool), and catheter. 
2. Help in equipping their houses to render them independent and self-reliant in their movement. 
3. Provide physiotherapy sessions to the handicapped at home where parents and relatives are trained on essential exercises that the patients should perform on a daily basis. 
4. Provide physiotherapy sessions to the handicapped by specialists at certain centers to help them recover. 

j- Orthopedic Workshop: 
Launched in 1985, the service includes the fitting of orthopedic limbs and splints. Each person who is not registered in the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) and who is not a member of the Employees Cooperative can take advantage of the service after presenting the following: a medical report of the patient's condition and a deposition showing that he is not registered in the NSSF or the Cooperative.

Second: On the Social Level: 

The medical-social centers implement programs that have a social-developmental nature and include: reproductive health, family planning, and literacy programs. These centers show a great interest in women and children. For women, the centers organize educational courses for adults, languages and vocational training on productivity occupations. Children meanwhile enjoy their share of the multitude of social services through extracurricular activities carried out by the school and summer clubs and appending school lessons during the academic year and summer activities.

Blood Services
 I promise to…save lives

• Mission 
The mission of the LRC Blood Transfusion Services (BTS) is to ensure self-sufficiency in terms of blood products throughout the Lebanese territory. 
Assuring a regular supply of safe blood products, through blood component collection, processing and testing, is the goal of LRC BTS. 

• History 
The Blood Transfusion Services started in 1964 with the opening of the first Blood Bank in Beirut. The expansion has taken place over the last 40 years (1964-2011) as more LRC Blood Transfusion Services were opened. Today 12 LRC Blood Transfusion Services exist in the six governorates of Lebanon. 

Blood can be donated at the LRC BTS, as well as during the occasional blood drives of the LRC. Blood collected through mobile blood drives is transported back to the LRC branches. All blood components are then distributed to health establishments to be transfused to patients. 

All the 12 blood transfusion centers carry out the same function: blood collection, component preparation, blood testing/screening and blood issuing. Additionally, the blood transfusion center at the LRC headquarters on Spears in Beirut performs radiation services. 
The 12 branches are all connected through software and the stock is shared by all branches, meaning blood units can be transported to patients in need. A staff with diverse specialization and technical skills is available to provide adequate service. Quality management is the focus of BTS centers practice.
