Special Needs Registry...let's hope we never need to use it.

emergency workers,females,fighting fires,firefighters,fires,jobs,life saving,males,men,occupations,people,people at work,persons,rescues,rescuing,women,workingAfter Hurricane Sandy hit us here in the North East, I think this info deserves reposting from two years back! I remember one fall storm after the twins came home with monitors that the power went out-a little unsettling!
I should have had them registered right away with the emergency response teams in our area so that they would have made our home a priority for restoring the power.

Here is a link to the special needs registry for PA . There seems to be an error tonight, I am assuming it is due to all the weather problems we have had! Paper registration forms are also available by writing or calling:
Montgomery County
Department of Public Safety
50 Eagleville Road
Eagleville, PA 19403
Here is a quote from the site:
Bucks, Chester and Montgomery Counties have jointly developed this registry to allow citizens with special needs and their associates an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies, so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergencies.

For the purpose of this project, a special needs individual is someone who cannot receive, understand or act upon emergency protective orders.

The information collected here will not be available to the public. The information will be held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning.

Please be as complete as possible in your responses. You will be e-mailed periodically to verify and ensure the information provided is correct and to make any necessary changes. Individual surveys will be archived after one year if not verified and facility surveys will be archived after six months if not verified.

If you are from another location, please check with your county to see if a program is in place for you to register!
