The Special Needs Program
Special Medical and Transportation Needs during Evacuations
When an evacuation order is given, your best choice is to travel to an area outside of the anticipated impact area.  Know Your Zone!

If you have nowhere else to go, emergency public shelters will provide a safe place to "weather the storm."  But remember, these shelters can be crowded and uncomfortable, might have no electricity, and have no privacy or secure place to store your things.  (think of a "Life Boat vs. Cruise Ship" analogy)

The Special Needs Program is designed for those who:  
1) must seek refuge in a public shelter during an evacuation, and
2) have special medical/functional needs or require government transportation assistance.
