Peter Killcommons

Based in San Francisco, California, Dr. Peter “Pete” Killcommons is a medical professional who has had several decades of experience during his career. In addition to his role as CEO of MedWeb, Dr. Peter “Pete” Killcommons is involved with a variety of other organizations, including the American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross (ARC) provides aid to those in need, and recently issued a statement on climate change, claiming that it is one of the most persistent challenges that ARC and organizations like it must overcome. In addition, it notes that ARC staff have seen the damage that it can cause first-hand, with the charity pointing to the aftermath of more intense storms, among other events.
The ARC also suggests that events such as these are increasing the demand for its services, as many of those affected are disproportionately poor and vulnerable. The organization has announced that it is changing its approach to dealing with these disasters. It notes that while it is still identifying long-term strategies, it plans to change how it allocates and develops response materials, prioritizing services to more vulnerable populations.
