Lewis and Upshur County LEPC
Special Needs Evacuation and Rescue Registry
In cooperation with the:
Lewis County Office of Emergency Management
Upshur County Office of Emergency Management
This program is designed for those who have “special needs,” (including but not limited to, medical dependency on electricity, respirator or dialysis dependant, wheelchair, bedridden or intravenous restricted) who may require shelter or evacuation assistance in the event of an emergency. It will assist responders by allowing the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to develop a map to pinpoint your location and compile specific data to assist agencies such as FEMA and the Red Cross to plan for contingencies.
If you anticipate the need for evacuation, you should make arrangements to shelter with relatives, friends or community organizations. If you require special medical transportation or facilities, you or your care giver should make those arrangements ahead of time. The special needs shelter and other emergency assistance is intended as a temporary last resort, when for reasons beyond your control, you are unable to implement your own emergency plan.
