Emergency Management Agency
Special Needs Registry

The purpose of the Benton County Special Needs Registry is to allow individuals with critical health and medical conditions that may require assistance during an emergency or disaster, such as a power outage, tornado, flood or other disaster, an opportunity to voluntarily register with the program.

If an emergency or disaster occurs, the Registry will provide emergency responders important information about your health and medical needs. This is important so that emergency responders know about you and can develop a more effective response.

The Registry is a voluntary program and in no way ensures that the individual enrolling in the program will receive immediate or preferential treatment in an emergency. This program will merely provide the emergency response community with information that is pertinent to developing an effective response, whether sheltering-in-place or evacuation.

The Benton County Special Needs Registry in no way replaces the responsibility of individuals to have their own emergency plan.
