The New Hanover County Special Needs Registry is a voluntary registry of individuals who would require assistance in the event of an emergency. This assistance could be as simple as advising a person of a situation in the vicinity of their residence to those who need evacuation assistance in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. This registry alerts emergency responders as to a resident’s address and gives them the vital information they need to better meet the resident’s needs. It is important that emergency personnel know where to find you, and how best to meet some of your requirements during a disaster requiring evacuation.
You can download the Special Needs Registration form here. Once completed, take or mail the form to:
