American Red Cross Reunification Website.
Safe and Well is an online reunification tool that is activated during disasters and emergencies in the Nation. Individuals can mark themselves as safe during a disaster, and look up family members and friends to check their safety status. Safe and Well is a self- reporting tool, so the American Red Cross cannot verify for accuracy. Visit website
Facebook Safety Check
The Facebook Safety Check feature is activated for areas that are experiencing a disaster, so the individual needs to have an accurate location in order to use this feature. If you are in an affected area you can mark yourself as safe and also check on friends or family in the impacted area to see if they have updated their safety status. Visit website

FEMA - Unaccompanied Minor Registration Form
This data collection tool is focused on collecting basic information of children who have been separated from their families as a result of a disaster. Individuals can provide basic information and photos concerning a located child whose parents are missing. Once registration information is submitted, it will be cross-referenced against any potential phone calls from a child’s parents who may be searching for their child. Visit website
