Register Ready State Program

Posted: August 20, 2013

The state of New Jersey offers a confidential statewide registry for people with disabilities who may need help in the event of a disaster or other emergency. The information is shared with Morris County’s Office of Emergency Management to help emergency responders locate and safely evacuate people who may find it difficult to help themselves in the event of a major disaster.

Anyone in Morris County who may find it difficult to self-evacuate because of a physical or cognitive limitation, language barrier or lack of transportation—particularly if family, friends, or caregivers are unavailable to help during a crisis—is encouraged to register with New Jersey’s special needs registry.

Rest assured, your information will be held securely and only used for emergency response and planning.

Individuals with special needs, as well as their families and/or caregivers, can register online at the state’s website. In order to complete the online form, you must have JavaScript enabled and you may have to temporarily disable any pop-up blockers you have working in tandem with your browser application.
