American Red Cross on Stand-by to Assist with Tsunami in Japan

The local Hokkaido Chapter of the Japanese Red Cross Society responded immediately following the earthquake, coordinating relief. Because Japan lies in one of the most earthquake active regions of the world, its Red Cross Society has experience responding to natural disasters and a well-organized disaster response plan with hundreds of response teams throughout the country.

The American Red Cross is closely monitoring developments and our International Disaster Response Unit is in contact with the Japanese Red Cross Society and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Geneva. Although no international assistance has been requested by the Japanese Red Cross, the American Red Cross is ready to provide support and our International Response Team members are on call.

At this time the American Red Cross Safe and Well website is available for people to attempt to locate loved ones. The NEW Safe and Well website address is www.redcross.org/safeandwell <http://www.redcross.org/safeandwell> . (update from the old URL site: www.safeandwell.org).

Several other resources are available: Inquiries concerning U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan should be referred to the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services at 1-888-407-4747 or 202 647-5225.
