Special Medical Needs Registry

The City of Jacksonville Emergency Preparedness Division maintains a registry of clients who have been identified as persons with Special Medical Needs. These individuals require assistance during evacuations and sheltering.

Look up Your Evacuation Zone

It’s critical to listen to local authorities and evacuate immediately if asked to do so. We encourage safety and being out of harm’s way above all.  If you don’t plan to evacuate, have enough food and water for at least three days.
