If you are elderly or have special needs, register with New Jersey Register Ready. The emergency services rescue teams will then know where you are and what they need to do to meet your needs in emergency situations.
The New Jersey registration website allows residents with special needs and their families, friends and associates an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies, so emergency responders can better plan to serve special needs individuals and their families in a disaster or other emergency.
The information collected is confidential and will not be available to the public; it will be held securely and only used for emergency response and planning.
All elderly and special needs individuals are strongly encouraged to register!
When registering, please be as complete as possible in your responses. You will be contacted occasionally to ensure the information is correct so any necessary changes can be made.
Why should you register?
- To be notified by local officials when an evacuation has been ordered.
- IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE!
To register, visit the Special Needs website. If you require registry assistance, dial 211 (toll free) and an operator will assist you in registering.
NOTE: Adverse weather can be devastating to everyone’s health, safety and well-being. Prepare now for alternative safe solutions to keeping cool or warm in the event of an extended power failure. Look after your elderly neighbors and report your concerns to the Borough. As always, for any emergency situations, call 9-1-1.
Do STOCK food that does not require refrigeration or cooking, plenty of bottled water and medications.
Do not forget preparations for your pets.
