LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Public Health Preparedness, a division of the City of Lubbock Health Department, and the Special Needs Alliance are introducing the Special Needs Registry to better serve the special needs population of Lubbock County.
The Special Needs Registry is a free voluntary program that was created to provide assistance to people with special needs during times of emergency such as during a natural disaster or terrorist incident.
The information collected is important to first responder efforts and assists the Fire and Police Department during search and rescue operations. It may also be used in the event of a bioterrorism attack when people may require special medications.
Lubbock County residents may register by printing and completing the Special Needs Registry Form found online then mailing or faxing it to the Health Department. Residents may also obtain and complete a form from the following drop-box locations:
The information collected is confidential and will only be shared with emergency response agencies to improve their ability to serve. For more information, contact the City of Lubbock Health Department at (806) 775-2953.
