Following a disaster, it is important to let your family and friends know that you are OK. The American Red Cross has established a Safe and Well website that the UW intends to use if a significant emergency or disaster impacts our campuses.
Everyone will be encouraged to go to the Safe and Well website to report their status. Information you can post includes:
- Your name
- Whether you are safe
- Your location
- Contact information
- A custom message
Family and friends will be directed to the Safe and Well website and will be able to search for you based on the information you provide.
Please note that phone lines may be busy or unavailable after a significant event and UW resources will be directed toward response and recovery efforts. As such, the UW will not be able to provide individual status updates.
