Rhode Island Special Needs Emergency Registry
State of Rhode Island Department of Health
The Rhode Island Department of Health and the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency have joined together to develop a registry for Rhode Islanders with disabilities, chronic conditions, and other special healthcare needs. This system is designed to identify individuals who may require special assistance during emergencies. Enrollment in the Registry does not guarantee assistance, but allows first responders to appropriately plan for, prepare for, and respond to the needs of the community.
