Australian Red Cross launches Register.Find.Reunite. to reunite families and friends impacted by Tropical Low 09U/Ex Tropical Cyclone Megan

Australian Red Cross < 1 mins read

In response to Tropical Low 09U/Ex Tropical Cyclone Megan, Australian Red Cross has launched the Register.Find.Reunite. service. 

Australian Red Cross NT Emergency Services State Manager Annette Plowman 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,” Ms Plowman 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 Tropical Low 09U/Ex Tropical Cyclone Megan, 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 redcross.org.au from a computer or any mobile device.  

If internet and mobile devices are down due to the emergency, people can also register and enquire in person at Foskey Pavilion Evacuation Centre at Darwin Showgrounds in Winnellie NT, 0820. 

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.

Independent Bushfire Group

Expert group calls for overhaul of disaster review

After examining the recommendations from the NSW Coronial Inquiry into the 2019/2020 Bushfires, released on 27 March, the Independent Bushfire Group (IBG) is even more disappointed with the outcome. “Four years is too long to wait for this. And most of the recommendations are about correcting basic procedures. While the emphasis on safety and training is welcome, it is concerning that the coroner found it necessary to spend a lot of the inquiry’s time on fundamentals that could have been fixed years ago,” acting convenor of IBG Gregor Manson said. “The inquiry only examined six specific issues, so how many…
