The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is an international humanitarian movement with approximately 97 million volunteers, members, and staff worldwide. It was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings, and to prevent and alleviate human suffering.

National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies exist in nearly every country in the world. They work according to the principles of international humanitarian law. They value humanity, impartiality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

The Mexican Red Cross in San Miguel has been operating continuously for 36 years. It has 250 volunteers in the areas of training, medical services, young people, and volunteer ladies for fundraising and social service. Its vehicle fleet has eight ambulances and one rescue. In 2015, it responded to 5,922 emergency calls and attended 97 percent of the known medical emergencies of San Miguel.

The local Red Cross is the only institution that provides free ambulance service in San Miguel. One ambulance is equipped for critical services, and two more are equipped to provide advanced emergency services. The staff is able to provide Intensive Care Services. The board includes Mexicans and expats.
