Day 2-

This article outlines the importance of making sure that those with special needs prepare before a disaster occurs http://www.emergencymgmt.com/disaster/Medical-Registries-Provide-Lifeline-Emergencies.html Suffolk County’s Emergency Preparedness Registry is one tool to assist those with special needs, and let responders know where a vulnerable resident lives. That can be found here http://friendsoflongisland.org/resources
Of course, not everybody has internet access.Community organization, faith based groups and local municipalities should assist those that can benefit from this service with enrollment.
Please share with your groups!
