Information for Clients & Family Members – Haiti Earthquake

For a Client in an Earthquake Area:

Refer them to FEMA’s web page about “What to do After an Earthquake”.   The most important things are to listen to the radio and to only place phone calls in the event of an emergency, since call volumes are very high during these times.

For Family Members:

The U.S. State Department Operations Center is advising Americans seeking information about family members in Haiti to call 1-888-407-4747. Due to heavy volume, some callers may receive a recording. “Our embassy is still in the early stages of contacting American citizens through our Warden Network,” the U.S. State Department said in a statement. “Communications are very difficult within Haiti at this time.” You can also follow the U.S. State Department’s latest Tweets for up-to-date information:
