‘Register Ready’ Helps Residents with Special Needs

Posted on June 25, 2019

Are you a resident with special needs? Do you have a family member or neighbor who may need special assistance during a disaster?

Residents with unique health or mobility needs can sign up for Register Ready, New Jersey’s free special needs registry for disasters. “Hurricane season began June 1 and runs through November, so it’s important to plan now,” she said.

Register Ready gives residents with disabilities or access and functional needs and their families, friends, caregivers and associates an opportunity to provide information to fire, first aid and law enforcement agencies, so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergency.

The information collected is confidential and will not be available to the public; it will be held securely and used only for emergency response and planning.

For help registering, dial 211 (toll free) and an operator will assist you.
