American Red Cross Prepares for Tropical Storm Fay in Florida
Date:8/17/2008

Red Cross Safe and Well Website Can Provide Peace of Mind to Loved Ones

WASHINGTON, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida residents listening to Tropical Storm Fay advisories on local and national news are also being informed of American Red Cross activities in their areas. The Red Cross is urging people to register themselves and their loved ones on the Safe and Well website, to let family and friends around the country know of their status. The website can be updated following evacuation or following the storm.

Red Cross workers are also moving both people and supplies into positions throughout Florida, including thousands of ready-to-eat meals and cots and dozens of Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs). Prior to Tropical Storm Fay making landfall, the Red Cross is preparing its own shelters and supporting other shelters that will be available for people needing to evacuate. Strategically placed warehouses and chapters allow the Red Cross to set up quickly in order to provide for the needs of those affected by storms and hurricanes.

The Safe and Well website is easy to use:

-- Visit Redcross.org, and click on the Safe and Well link

-- Click on "List Myself as Safe and Well," enter your pre-disaster address and phone number, and select any of the standard message options.

-- If you are concerned about a loved one, click "Search" and enter the person's name and pre-disaster phone number OR address. If they have registered, you will be able to view the messages that they posted.

-- If you don't have internet access, you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to register yourself and your family. Follow the prompts for disaster information.

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.
