Thanks to my colleagues for supporting an item I sponsored with Councilwoman Rae Gabelich that approves Long Beach Fire and Police departments participating in the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management Special Needs Disaster Registry.
The SNAP program is voluntary and allows persons with special needs and/or disabilities who may need specific disability related assistance and/or accommodations in the event of a major disaster. Special accommodations and assistance needs may include communicating through alternative means, requring specialized paratransit services, life sustaining medications or equipment, etc.
Enrollment in the Special Needs Registry is completely voluntary. The information provided could help to save lives. Information submitted to this registry is confidential and will only be used by first responders.
Long Beach residents wishing to sign up for the program should click here or to to the Los Angeles County -- http://www.snap.lacounty.gov/
