Hurricane Registry for those with Functional, Access and Medical Needs

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Hurricane Registry.PNG
REGISTER NOW AT: 1-833-CHD-REGISTER

This new Public Service Announcement explains the Hurricane Registry for those with Functional, Access and Medical Needs. This information could be life-saving! 


Functional and access needs registrants/clients are defined as those who may need services to maintain their independence in a shelter. This includes, but is not limited to, children and adults with physical, sensory, mental, and cognitive and/or intellectual disabilities affecting their ability to function independently. Others may include women in late stages of pregnancy, elderly, and people needed bariatric equipment.


Medical needs registrants/clients require support of trained medical professionals. This may include managing intravenous therapy, tube feeding, receiving dialysis and oxygen, and operating power dependent equipment to sustain life.

 

The registry is made up of residents who may require transport and medical assistance during a hurricane evacuation and have no other resources to help them if they need to evacuate. It is important to register early so officials will know where our vulnerable residents are located.


For those that may not qualify for the Hurricane Registry for Functional, Access and Medical, there is still evacuation assistance available. For more information, view the Evacuation Assembly Area plan.
