Special Needs Sheltering Information


The links below will provide you with contact information for your county Special Needs Registry. The information we are able to provide varies: some counties have registration forms available online in a downloadable format or that can be electronically submitted, while others may have only a telephone number for registration.

 

If you are medically dependent on electricity, need transportation to evacuate, or assistance to maintain health due to disability, it is important that you research your county's Special Needs Registry. Each county handles the registry of persons with special needs and the provision of services for persons with special needs a little differently. Special Needs Shelters provide a level of medical care beyond basic first aid to maintain the health status of persons who are medically stable and do not require a level of services beyond the capacity of the shelter.
