Register Ready: Special Needs Registry For Disasters from the N.J. Department of Education

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is partnering with the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) to improve the state’s ability to respond to residents with disabilities or those with functional needs when a disaster such as Hurricane Sandy occurs. The “Register Ready” Special Needs Registry for Disasters is an online registry in which citizens can provide emergency response agencies with important information (e.g., if a resident is wheelchair bound or requires medical apparatus) so that emergency responders can be better prepared to serve those individuals during a natural disaster or other emergency.
