NJ Office of Emergency Management
The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is partnering with the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) to improve the state’s ability to respond to residents with disabilities or those with functional needs when a disaster such as Hurricane Sandy occurs. The “Register Ready” Special Needs Registry for Disasters is an online registry in which citizens can provide emergency response agencies with important information (e.g., if a resident is wheelchair bound or requires medical apparatus) so that emergency responders can be better prepared to serve those individuals during a natural disaster or other emergency. Register Ready is a confidential database that can only be accessed by designated local, county and state emergency managers. The NJOEM Register Ready webpage contains links to brochures about the registry program in English and Spanish. Citizens should go to the Register Ready registration webpage to sign up for the program.
The NJOEM encourages New Jersey residents with disabilities or access and functional needs to sign up with Register Ready well before disaster strikes.
