The month of September is designated national preparedness month and Allen County has developed a registry to allow citizens with special needs and facilities that serve those with special needs an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies, so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergencies. For the purpose of this project, a special needs individual is someone who cannot receive, understand or act upon emergency protective orders. The information collected there will not be available to the public. The information will be held securely and only accessed for the purpose of emergency response and planning. If you know someone who qualifies for this service, please use the icon below to help register them.
