The Liberty County Health Department is accepting applications for its Hurricane Registry. The registry lists residents who may need transportation or medical assistance and have limited or no resources to family members, neighbors and friends during an evacuation.
Clients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are not eligible. Those clients should consult with their homes’ emergency plans.
Those registering should have a personal caregiver who can accompany them to a shelter. The caregiver must be able to provide the same care at the shelter as is delivered at home. This may be for an extended period, 4-7 days or longer, depending on the event.
Depending on your health status you may be transported to an American Red Cross shelter or admitted to an inland healthcare facility.
Shelters will provide no more than 20-40 square feet of space. There may be a cost associated with care or transportation if the client is placed in a healthcare facility.
