Functional Needs Planning System

This system allows those with functional needs the opportunity to provide information to emergency responders to assist in planning before, during, and after emergencies.  The planning tool is intended to assist public safety professionals and volunteers to better meet the needs of the functional population and provides the basis for improved coordination and planning in helping people with functional needs and the facilities that serve them. Registering does not guarantee services and should not take the place of personal preparation.

If you or someone you know has a special need, perhaps mobility issues, oxygen usage or communication difficulties, please take advantage of this system to ensure emergency personnel are aware of your situation.
