American Red Cross Urges, 'Prepare for Ike'
Date:9/11/2008

As Hurricane Ike nears the Gulf Coast, evacuating Texans are urged to spare their families worry by registering on the Red Cross Safe and Well Web site.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hurricane Ike is expected to make landfall late Friday evening or early Saturday morning, affecting areas of Texas and Louisiana. As the Red Cross continues moving relief supplies to Texas, its message to residents is urgent: listen to the directions of local officials; prepare to evacuate if told to do so; and register on the Red Cross Safe and Well Web site.

Before you evacuate your home, call someone you love and tell them you are safe. Then, ask them to register you on Safe and Well (disastersafe.redcross.org), the Web site that allows people directly affected by a disaster to let their loved ones know that they are okay. Safe and Well is also accessible through the American Red Cross public Web site, http://www.redcross.org. For those without internet access, you can register yourself and your family by calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767). Follow the prompts for disaster information.

Anyone evacuating to a Red Cross shelter should bring essential items for each member of the family:

-- Prescription and emergency medications.

-- Foods that meet unusual dietary requirements.

-- Identification and important personal documents.

-- Extra clothing, pillows, blankets, hygiene supplies and other comfort items.

-- Supplies needed for children and infants, such as diapers, formula and toys.

-- Special items for family members who are elderly or disabled.

When evacuating, be sure to pack medications and other supplies that you or a member of your family cannot do without. The Red Cross provides as many items as possible for shelter residents' comfort, but everything you need might not be readily available in a short-term shelter.
