"Safe & Well" website lets people use internet to let loved one know they're OK

BATON ROUGE (KSLA) - The American Red Cross encourages all Hurricane Gustav evacuees to register online to post a message on their "Safe and Well" website.

The site is designed to help concerned family and friends check on the well-being of a loved one affected by a disaster. Evacuees can post first and last name, an "As of Date," and the "safe and well" message selected.

Safe and Well is available in Spanish, and users who speak other languages can register by calling 866-GET-INFO and a Call Agent will connect the caller to AT&T's language line for translation.

Registration for the hearing impaired can be supported by dialing the TTY number.
