The Martin County Special Needs Registry and Evacuation Transportation Assistance Program is designed to assist those with special medical, transportation or mobility considerations during disaster situations.
This assistance may include sheltering at a general shelter, or a special needs shelter that includes limited medical oversight and needs such as oxygen, as well as evacuation transportation to and from the shelter.
The program also provides for citizens in need of transportation due to economic difficulties, a disability, or lack of transportation from their home to a shelter.
When evacuation orders are issued within the county, registrants are contacted and advised when transportation will arrive to pick them up from a home and take them to a shelter.
Residents must PRE-REGISTER and must RENEW each year.
