City Encourages Those with Special Needs to Sign Up for New Jersey Register Ready Program

The Register Ready special needs registry for disasters is an important emergency program designed to help those who may have difficulty during an evacuation because of physical or other limitations, or lack of transportation. It's a program that will help first responders make the best use of limited time and resources by planning to help those with limited options for evacuation during an emergency.

People with special needs (or caregivers on their behalf) are encouraged to register electronically, if possible, by accessing www.registerready.nj.gov.

Alternatively, they can call New Jersey’s toll-free 2-1-1 telephone service. This service will register people, offer free translation, and provide TTY services for the hearing impaired.

Paper registration can be downloaded by clicking here or picked up from the Ventnor City Office of Emergency Management:

Ventnor City Emergency Management
6201 Atlantic Avenue
2nd Floor – OEM Ventnor NJ
08406
609-823-7919 

Information entered in Register Ready is confidential and is not available to the public. All information is maintained in a secure database and will be used only for emergency response. The only information needed is that which explains how a disability or limitation may affect one’s ability to evacuate their residence.

If you or someone you know has not registered yet, don’t put it off for another moment. Register today and be ready
