FRANKFORT, Ky. - Governor Ernie Fletcher is calling on faith-based organizations to contact state emergency management agencies to coordinate disaster relief efforts through the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management. "Many churches and other organizations have opened their doors to provide a place to eat and sleep to evacuees coming to Kentucky," said Governor Fletcher. "And with the need expected to grow in the coming weeks, I'm calling on faith-based organizations to coordinate efforts through our emergency management offices to make sure the evacuees are getting the care and attention they need." (...) Emergency officials also want to remind evacuees that they must register as soon as possible with their local American Red Cross chapter and with FEMA. AMERICAN RED CROSS NUMBERS TO CALL TO REGISTER:
1-800-438-4636 ( 1-800-"GET HELP")
1-800-438-4637 ( 1-800-"HELP NOW")

The problem is, the second phone number listed for the Red Cross (ending in 4637) is actually for a phone sex service.
