City seeks way to track citizens with special needs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In an effort to find a way to track physical disabilities or other special needs in the event of an emergency or disaster, the City of Lubbock created a Special Needs Registry.

If you have a disability or if you care for such a person, you're encouraged to register. The City promises that the information will be kept private and is only for use by police and firefighters for emergencies. It's both voluntary and free.

For more information, contact the City of Lubbock Health Department at (806) 775-2953 or visit click here.
