The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management recommend residents prepare for the upcoming storms and any emergency event by signing up with New Jersey’s Special Needs Registry for Disasters. The program, offered by the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management, is a free, voluntary and confidential program designed to assist people with special needs who might have a difficult time staying safe in an emergency.
Signing up with New Jersey’s Special Needs Registry for Disasters will help first responders make the best use of limited time and resources by planning to help those with limited options for evacuation during an emergency.
People with special needs or their caregivers on their behalf are encouraged to register electronically by accessing www.registerready.nj.gov or you can call New Jersey’s toll-free 2-1-1 telephone service. This service will register people, offer free translation, and provide TTY services for the hearing-impaired. Additionally, registration forms are available through the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management.
