Special Needs Information

If you or a family member, during periods of evacuation or emergency, requires evacuation and/or sheltering assistance due to physical impairments, mental impairments, cognitive impairment, or sensory disabilities; it is important that you are aware of your County's Special Needs Shelter program and its Registry. While all Special Needs Shelters provide a level of medical care that exceeds basic first aid provided at General Population Shelters, the capabilities of each Special Needs Shelter may vary based upon a community's needs and available resources. It is important that you become familiar with the services available within your community before an emergency or disaster strikes, please reach out to your County directly to obtain more information about its Special Needs program.
