You should register in the Vulnerable Population Registry if you are at risk due to a disability, frailty or health issue, regardless of age, AND elect to stay at home in the event of a hurricane or other emergency. Registration information will be used for planning purposes only. Registration does not guarantee that you will be provided assistance.
If you have a special medical need, you are strongly encouraged to register for Broward County's Special Needs Shelter. Registration should be in advance, before a storm threatens. To register for a Special Needs Shelter and/or transportation to the shelter, call Broward County Human Services Department at 954-357-6385 (TTY 954-357-5608). There are some limitations, so be sure to inquire about your specific situation when you call to register.
If you are in an evacuation zone (Emergency Shelter Map) you are strongly encouraged to evacuate to a safe refuge with a family member or friend. A Red Cross General Population Shelter should be a refuge of last resort.
