Special Needs

The Florida Division of Emergency Management, in coordination with each local emergency management agency in the state, developed a registry to allow residents with special needs to register with their local emergency management agency to receive assistance during a disaster. The registry also allows facilities that provide assistance to individuals with special needs a system to register. The statewide registry provides first responders with valuable information to prepare for disasters or other emergencies.

Why should you register?
1.) To receive important information from local emergency management officials about evacuations.
2) IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE!

You can register on line at https://snr.floridadisaster.org/Signin?ReturnUrl=%2fSurveys
