Carr Fire Missing Loved Ones

Jehoisabiah (Josie) Englin outside Redding City Limits

After working in one of the Carr Fire Evac shelters I can say with a pretty high degree of certainty that the Safe and Well website was not being well tended to. Nore were there an abundance of people signing up for Safe and Well or even being told there was such a website during the registration process. To tell family members that they have to check there first is frankly a bunch of hooey. These families ought to be able to check first where they darn well please. Being told that it is a possible, slim chance that their loved ones may be in the Safe and Well data base would be more accurate and less time consuming, which we all know is highly important when someone goes missing. So my question is, can we please change the procedure for missing persons related to the Carr Fire?

Thank you for your concern. The Red Cross runs the shelters and I am advising you provide you suggestion to them.
