Specific Needs Disaster Voluntary Registry

Welcome

Welcome to the Los Angeles County Specific Needs Disaster Registry.

The purpose of this registry is to facilitate the planning and implementation of disaster response by first-responder agencies to individuals with Disabilities or Access and Functional Needs living in the County of Los Angeles. The registry is a project of the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management in cooperation with other cities and agencies in the Los Angeles County disaster response operational area.

If you (or the person you are registering) live in Los Angeles County and have any of the following conditions which might impede with your abilities to evacuate a building, travel to, or remain safe in an emergency evacuation center, or to securely shelter in place without assistance, then you may want to consider enrolling in the Registry.

Should a disaster strike in your area, this registry will be used to enhance the efficiency of those agencies called upon to respond. Enrollees are not prioritized for first consideration or evacuation. However the responding agencies will use this information to maximize their capacity to serve those with specific needs, both in the planning and preparation process, as well as in their actual post-disaster response.

image: Exclamation!   Enrolling in the registry should never be considered as the only action necessary to prepare for disasters, nor does it ensure prompt and thorough response after a disaster strikes.

Emergency responders will attempt to use the registry to enhance their response capacities and to better understand the enrollees' specific accommodations needs, taking into consideration the necessity to allocate their resources across the impacted areas. Enrollees should take appropriate measures to become as self-prepared as necessary, given their particular personal situations. Residents of Southern California are advised to prepare themselves for up to 72 hours of self-sustained survival, should that become necessary.
