Register.Find.Reunite. launched to reunite families and friends impacted by severe storms and flooding in Queensland

30 January 2024

Australian Red Cross has opened Register.Find.Reunite. and is urging people affected by the severe storms and flooding in Queensland to get in touch with their families and friends. 

Australian Red Cross State Manager Emergency Services, Collin Sivalingum said 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,” Mr Sivalingum said. 

“The service helps find and reunite family, friends and loved ones during a disaster.” 

If you or a loved one has been impacted by severe storms and flooding, Australian Red Cross encourages you to register or enquire through the Register.Find.Reunite. service. People can register and look for someone with Register.Find.Reunite. on the Australian Red Cross website at 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 or in person on:

  • 1300 253 228 (Internationally)  
  • In person at various evacuation centres across City of Moreton Bay please check out Dashboard ( 

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, with consent, 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.
