New Jersey Register Ready

Montgomery Township Health Department and Montgomery Township Office of Emergency Management is encouraging residents to sign up for the “New Jersey Register Ready” Registry. This registry is a safety net for residents who may find it difficult to evacuate during an emergency.  Residents with special needs or caregivers on their behalf can sign up at

The New Jersey Special Needs Registry is free, voluntary, and strictly confidential. It is designed to help people who may have difficulty during an evacuation because of physical or cognitive limitations, language barriers or lack of transportation.
Registering will help first responders, such as police, fire and rescue squad personnel, make the best use of limited time and resources to help people with no other options for evacuation during an emergency.   Residents without internet access can apply by printing out and mailing in to our Health Dept. this self-mailer form (CLICK HERE).  Please mail to:
