National disaster information and resources

National Registration and Inquiry System

During a disaster, the Australian Red Cross launches its National Registration and Inquiry System. People residing and working in disaster-affected areas are encouraged to register their name and location details with the system. Once people have registered, friends and families will be able to locate those living or working in disaster-affected areas.

By connecting people, this system aims to alleviate stress and anxiety levels of people concerned for friends and families in disaster-affected areas.

The National Registration and Inquiry System can be accessed during a disaster by:

  • visiting
  • calling 1800 727 077
  • visiting an evacuation centre coordinated by the Red Cross.
