I didn’t explain what Register Ready was in my last post so I need to take care of that. The Registry (a special needs registry) is used by first responders (Police, Fire, Sheriff Officers, Emergency Medical Services, Health Department Personnel, and if necessary, the Army National Guard) to assist in relocating our residents prior to an emergency situation. The Special Needs Registry is free, strictly confidential, and completely voluntary.
You are eligible if you have no place to go during an emergency and have a disability covered under the Americans With Disabilities Act or require additional assistance due to the following conditions:
- History of stroke
- Hearing, vision, or speech impaired
- Frail elderly
- Walking limitation
- Severe breathing problem
- Wheelchair, cane, or walker user
- Heart problem
- Mentally challenged
For more information or to get signed up in Salem County, call (856) 935-7510 Ext. 8304
Also, I wanted to remind everyone of the legal talks going on in September.
