Jackson County has developed this registry to allow citizens with special needs and home health care agencies, hospices, department of Elder Affairs and Agency for Persons with Disabilities an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies, so emergency responders can better plan for and serve them in a disaster or other emergency.
For the purpose of this registry, a special needs individual is someone who needs assistance during evacuations and sheltering because of physical, mental, cognitive impairment, or sensory disabilities [FS 252.355(1)]
The information collected here will not be available for public view. It will be held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning.
Please be as complete as possible in your responses. You will be e-mailed periodically to verify and ensure the information provided is correct and to make any necessary changes. Individual surveys will be archived after one (1) year if not verified and home health, hospices, Department of Elder Affairs and Agency for Persons with Disability surveys will be archived after six (6) months if not verified.
