American Red Cross General Population shelters provide a basic level of care and are open to all. Registration is not required. However, pre-registration is encouraged for Special Needs Shelters. Services at Special Needs shelters are now provided by Broward County Health Department. If you registered for this service prior to 2010, you must re-register and be evaluated using Florida Department of Health eligibility criteria. For more information or to register, call Broward County Human Services Department at 954-357-6385 (TTY 954-357-5608). Applications are also available online. Visit www.broward.org/atrisk, click SPECIAL NEEDS and select SHELTER AND TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE APPLICATION. If you pre-register, you are not obligated to go to the shelter in an emergency.
Pre-register for paratransit transportation, if you think you may need it. As with shelter registration, you are not obligated to take advantage of the service if your plans change. To pre-register, call Broward County Human Services Department at 954-357-6385 (TTY 954-357-5608).
VULNERABLE POPULATION REGISTRY:
Residents who are disabled, frail or have health issues should register in advance with the Vulnerable Population Registry. The Registry is not a guarantee of services, but it enables emergency workers to better respond in a recovery effort. Visit www.broward.org/atrisk, call 311 or 954-831-4000.
