Access and Functional Needs Registry

Rockland County has developed this registry for residents with limited mobility or special needs, which might impact a timely response during an emergency. If you believe you, or someone you care for, is unable to independently act upon emergency protective orders, please continue with registration:
Why should you register?
   Exclamation To receive individual notification when an evacuation has been ordered
   Exclamation To alert local emergency personnel of your individual considerations
   Exclamation To allow emergency responders an opportunity to plan and be prepared
Please be as thorough as possible in your survey responses. The information collected here will be kept confidential, and once you have enrolled, we will contact you periodically during routine testing of our automated notification system.

Please note: Surveys left unverified will be archived; individual residents after 12 months, and facility surveys after 6 months.

Remember! Personal Preparedness is Vital to All
Emergency responders rely upon you to be prepared and as self sufficient as possible. It is important for all residents to have an individual or family plan in case of an emergency. Supply yourself with an emergency preparedness kit and have emergency “drills” regularly.

*The “Go Bag” is a supply kit of basic items that are useful during emergencies. It is prepared in advance and should be placed where it is easily accessible, including during power outages. For more information on obtaining or assembling your own “Go Bag” please visit http://www.ready.gov.


Important!
The first line of defense against the effects of a disaster is personal preparedness. During an emergency, the government and other agencies may not be able to meet your needs. It is important for all citizens to make their own emergency plans and prepare for their own care and safety in an emergency.
