  • Notice from the State of New Jersey - Special Needs Registry for Disasters

    New Jersey has created a "Register Ready" Special Needs Registry for Disasters. This confidential online registry allows citizens to 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. To sign up for this program, go to the Register Ready registration webpage: https://www13.state.nj.us/SpecialNeeds/Signin?ReturnUrl=%2fSpecialNeeds%2f .   Or, you can call New Jersey's toll free 2-1-1- service and ask to be registered.
