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. The Special Needs Registry is open to individuals and facilities.
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 is not available to the public and is held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning.
The first line of defense against the effects of a disaster is personal preparedness. During an emergency, the government and other agencies may not be able to meet your needs. It is important for all citizens to make their own emergency plans and prepare for their own care and safety in an emergency.
