KBZK: Red Cross sets up ‘safe and well’ website to keep family, friends connected

A website set up by the American Red Cross is helping people to keep family and friends in touch with each other in emergency situations.

With flooding displacing many eastern Montana residents, the Montana Red Cross says it has received numerous calls from people concerned about the wellbeing of family members and friends.

The website www.safeandwell.org allows people to register themselves as “safe and well” to alert their family and friends of their status. People can also search the site to learn about the status of a loved one.

The Montana Red Cross also invites people who are living in areas that are threatened by rising water and flooding and have been or are about to be displaced from their homes to call 1-800-ARC-MONT. Others are likely to be affected in that area, and shelter response will be swifter with updates.
