In a Disaster, how do I know that my needs will be met?
Prepare in Advance
Make sure you are prepared for an emergency. Create a family plan, put together a kit of emergency supplies, and know where to get information. www.specialneedspa.org has a list of resources if you need more information.
Help Emergency Responders Help You
By signing up for the Registry, you can help us plan to meet your needs.
Remember: You are the best person to know what your abilities and needs are before, during and after a disaster. It is important to know how to prepare, plan and communicate your needs and abilities In an emergency, the government and other agencies may not be able to meet all of your needs. It is important for everyone to make their own plans to care for themselves in an emergency.
Why should I sign up?
By signing up for the Registry you will let emergency responders know who you are and what your needs are. The information you provide will be used in the planning process, as well as in response during a disaster. If a disaster occurs in your area, this registry will be used to enhance the efficiency of response agencies to serve those with specific needs.
When will my information be used?
Emergency responders will use it to plan for large scale emergencies. Each municipality determines how they will use the information. The information will be held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning. The information collected will not be available to the public.
Will anyone contact me after I enter information?
You will be e-mailed once a year to verify and ensure the information provided is correct and to make any necessary changes. It will be sent to the e-mail address you gave us when you signed up. If you completed a paper survey, you’ll get a phone call or letter once a year. Individual surveys will be archived after one year if not verified and facility surveys will be archived after six months.
If I have a loved one who lives in a facility where other people take care of them, should I enter their information?
No. This tool is only for people who live in private homes. We are working on plans to help identify people that live in other types of places.
Facilities that serve individuals with special needs can also sign up. Emergency responders will be able to communicate with facilities during emergencies, such as a public health outbreak, or a mass care incident. This will allow facilities to receive up to date information on emergencies so that they can best provide for their clients and community.
