Hurricanes Harvey & Irma have made it clear how important it is to be prepared for an emergency. “Register Ready – New Jersey’s Special Needs Registry for Disasters” allows New Jersey residents with disabilities or access and functional needs and their families, friends, caregivers and associates an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergency. The information collected is confidential, will be held securely and only used for emergency response and planning.
For more information and to register, go to www.registerready.nj.gov or dial 211 (toll-free) and an operator will assist you in registering.
