[ARCHIVED] Special Needs Registry

Residents who would need special assistance if they had to leave their homes in an emergency should sign up for Westchester County's Special Needs Registry.

Residents who would need special assistance if they had to leave their homes in an emergency should sign up for Westchester County's Special Needs Registry. The new registry, coordinated by the Department of Emergency Services, is for people with physical or mental disabilities who live on their own. While the database is confidential, it will be shared with local municipalities to use in their emergency planning efforts.

Residents can register by calling 2-1-1, going on-line at www.westchestergov.com/specialneeds, or by obtaining an application from the Office of Emergency Management at (914) 864-5450. People are also able to register a family member or friend in need.

Flyers to help pass the word are available at www.westchestergov.com/specialneedsflyers.
