  • The Red Cross urges all those who have evacuated or who expect to evacuate to register their well being on the Red Cross Safe and Well website.
  • Family and friends can then log on and search for registered individuals to learn of their whereabouts and safety.
  • People without access to a computer or without electricity or connectivity can call the Red Cross (1-800-REDCROSS) for help registering, or contact a loved one to register on their behalf.
  • Please note that the Safe and Well site safeguards the privacy of the disaster victim. Although these messages will be viewable by friends or family members who conduct a successful search, the site does not reveal a specific location or contact information.
