Red Cross has opened Register.Find.Reunite. and is urging people affected by the Bushfire near Augusta in Western Australia 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, Erin Fuery.

 

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

 

If you or a loved one has been impacted by the Bushfire near Augusta, 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. at the Margaret River Cultural Centre, 51 Wallcliffe Road in Margaret River, at the Augusta Centennial Hall, 62 Allnut Terrace in Augusta, or on the Red Cross website.

 

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.
