Vulnerable Population Registry
Planning for the needs of vulnerable populations during a disaster is a key component of public health emergency preparedness planning. Fargo Cass Public Health has created a pre-registration system to help identify where those individuals who are most vulnerable can be located, and if necessary, assist them in relocation to a safe place until they can return home.
At risk or vulnerable populations are often those who live independently or with the help of a care giver and yet may need additional assistance in the event of a disaster, especially in the area of transportation. These populations include, but are not limited to: those with a disability, frail or have significant health issues, elderly with no family/friend assistance; social or behavioral challenges, and homeless.
The Vulnerable Population Registry has been designed to assist public health and other emergency workers to better plan for future disasters. Registering into this system should not be considered a guarantee that you will be placed on a priority list for emergency responders; however it will make us aware of your individual situation and help us to be better prepared to assist you.
