Mexican Red Cross – Puerto Peñasco Delegation

The Puerto Peñasco office of the Mexican Red Cross was founded in 1958. The local office does not receive any governmental funding and is sustained solely through donations so that its emergency services can remain free. The local Red Cross currently has 45 volunteer EMTs, 6 ambulances, and 1 rescue vehicle.


In addition to working to fulfill its objectives of promoting the principal fundamentals of International Red Cross, and Media Luna Roja, the Puerto Peñasco Red Cross provides urgent care services and helps accident victims while also providing ambulance service to the scene. In general, the goal of the Red Cross is to contribute to improvements in health, disease prevention, and relief of suffering within the population, particularly for those in vulnerable conditions.
