Safety Check and crisis Pages

Reach out and offer support to the most relevant people affected by a crisis.

  • Safety Check

    When people affected by a crisis post to Facebook about an incident, Safety Check may be activated. Safety Check prompts people in the crisis area to mark themselves as safe, then sends them to the dedicated crisis Page where they can ask for, or offer, help.

  • Crisis Response Pages

    When Safety Check has been activated, a dedicated Facebook crisis Page that contains information about the active crisis is created to help bring people who are located in the affected areas together. People, charities and businesses can post to a specific crisis Page to find and offer help following a crisis.
