The State of North Carolina is requiring all counties to create,
update and maintain a Special Needs Registry. This form will be
used to provide important information to emergency responders in
the case of a 9-1-1 call during a disaster (such as flooding, blizzard,
power outage, disease outbreak, etc) to insure that individuals’
special needs are met.
All information that is received will be kept confidential.
However, this form does not guarantee immediate or preferential
treatment during a disaster. This is a voluntary and confidential
program and individuals have the option to accept or deny assistance
during an emergency. Individuals should maintain a personal emergency plan.
