Register.Find.Reunite. launched to reunite families and friends affected by Bushfires in Wieambilla/Tara QLD

13 February 2023
Red Cross has opened Register.Find.Reunite. and is urging people affected by the Wieambilla/Tara Bushfires to get in touch with their families and friends
 

“Being separated from family and friends is one of the most stressful things a person can experience during an emergency. Not knowing where your loved ones are, not being able to contact them by phone or email adds to that anxiety,” said Red Cross State Manager Emergency Services, Collin Sivalingum “The service helps find and reunite family, friends and loved ones during a disaster.”

People who have been affected in the Wieambilla/Tara area are encouraged to register with Red Cross online, by telephone or in person at an evacuation centre.

Online at: www.redcross.org.au

By phone: 1800 442 182 (Australia wide) or internationally from +61 (7) 3055 6230 (international calls only)

In person at Evacuation Centre:  Western Downs Regional Council - Tara Customer Service Centre, 19 Fry Street, Tara 4221.

People can register and look for someone with Register.Find.Reunite. on the Red Cross website at redcross.org.au from a computer or any mobile device. If internet and mobile devices are down due to the emergency, people can
also register and enquire via the phone on numbers 1800 442 182 (Australia wide) or internationally from +61 (7) 3055 6230 (international calls only).

The Register.Find.Reunite. service matches registrations from people affected by an emergency to enquiries made by their loved ones searching for news. Where a match is made, the person who made the enquiry will be
notified.

It is important for emergency management agencies to know where people are during emergencies. By registering with Register.Find.Reunite. you are also letting important services know that you are OK and what
support you may need.
