The Suffolk County Emergency Preparedness Registry

The Suffolk County emergency management offices keep a current list of people within a community who have a disability/special need so you can be quickly located and assisted in the event of an emergency. It is important that you register with this program. Registering with us not only provides vital information to the county should you need assistance in an emergency, but may also qualify you for special sheltering or transportation programs. This is strictly voluntary.

Who Should Register?

You should register if you foresee any difficulty in getting to safety with family or friends, or to a Public Shelter during an Emergency Evacuation.

Smart 911

Smart911 is a service that allows residents to create a free Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location. At a time when seconds count, Smart911 provides details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed, which could be the difference between life and death.
