NJ Register Ready has been established to collect information emergency responders will need to help locate and evacuate people with Access and Functional Needs during an emergency, when a family member or caregiver are unable to help them.
The Registry Ready initiative is a voluntary and free program designed to assist first responders and emergency planners in identifying those residents that may need assistance in evacuating in advance of an emergency and so that emergency management may develop the necessary plans to support those needs. It will also aid emergency planners in the development of shelter plans for those residents with Access and functional Needs. The information collected through a secure online portal is only accessible to emergency management and first responders.
You (or someone on your behalf) should register if you find it difficult to get to safety with family or friends or to a public shelter during an emergency evacuation, because of a physical or cognitive limitation, language barrier, or lack of transportation. Remember, your priority should be to relocate with a family member or friend first!
You can register by:
- Calling TOLL FREE 2-1-1 and register by telephone; TTY/TDD translation services also available.
- Go to New Jersey Register Ready website and complete the online registration.
