PRINCETON, NJ, February 2, 2007 – Family and friends of those affected by today’s tornadoes in central Florida can check the American Red Cross “Safe and Well Website” for information at https://disastersafe.redcross.org/Default.aspx.

The website is available round the clock, and the Red Cross encourages affected residents to register. Wherever there is Internet access, people can register on or search the website.

The “Safe and Well Website” enables people within a disaster area to let their families and friends outside of the affected region know that they are “safe and well.” Loved ones who are concerned about family members in an affected area can search the website to view these messages.

The site can also be reached via www.redcross.org by clicking the “Safe and Well Website” link.



The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the nearly 1 million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through almost 815 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some 4 million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, a global network of 181 national societies, the Red Cross helps restore hope and dignity to the world's most vulnerable people. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
