Australian Red Cross launches Register.Find.Reunite. to reunite families and friends impacted by Shire of Chittering Bushfire

Australian Red Cross < 1 mins read

In response to the Shire of Chittering Bushfire, Australian Red Cross has launched the Register.Find.Reunite. service.

Australian Red Cross Emergency Services State Manager for WA, Jennifer Pidgeon 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, and not being able to contact them by phone or email adds to that anxiety. The Register.Find.Reunite. service helps find and reunite family, friends and loved ones during a disaster,” Ms Pidgeon said.

If you or a loved one has been impacted by the Shire of Chittering Bushfire Australian Red Cross encourages you to register or enquire through the Register.Find.Reunite. service via the Australian Red Cross website at redcross.org.au from a computer or any mobile device.

The 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’s 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.

Improving crisis communication for multilingual communities

The Albury-Wodonga region has become a case study for a large multidisciplinary research collaboration to improve the emergency alert system for multilingual communities, with La Trobe University’s regional campus at the heart of the project. Albury-Wodonga was selected as the pilot site for the Multilingual Inclusive Emergency Alerts (MIEA) project due to its cross-border complexities around government jurisdictions, community demographics and the environmental nature and geography of the region. In addition, the region’s past climate-related emergency events, including floods, fire and drought, demonstrate the issues faced by emergency services when designing and distributing timely, appropriate community alerts during emergency events.…
