We can’t know when, or if, an emergency or disaster will occur; but we can think ahead and plan ahead to be ready - just in case. We call this effort emergency preparedness.
Our agency, together with the Cayuga County Emergency Management Office, has taken on the task of maintaining a registry of persons who may need extra help in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. You may already know about this list. It has been known in the past as the Disabled Persons Voluntary Registry. Now we call it simply the Disabled Persons Registry.
Download the registration form (PDF). You will have to print it out on your computer printer. If you are not yet included in this registry, please consider if you may need extra help in an emergency. If so, fill out the form and send it in. If you are already included in the registry, please fill out the form again so that we may have your most current information. This needs to be done every year in order to maintain your eligibility.
By sending us the completed form, you will become eligible to receive special assistance. Your need might include a delivery of oxygen or help to get to a shelter. Fill out the form so that we know what your particular needs might be - just in case. When you’re finished, mail it to: Cayuga County Office for the Aging 160 Genesee Street, Basement Auburn, NY 13021
If you no longer wish to be included in the registry, if you have any questions, or if you know of someone who would like to be included on the Disabled Registry list, please email our staff or call 315-253-1226.
Please fill out and send this form today because we can’t know when, or if, an emergency or disaster will occur; but we can do our best to be ready - just in case.
Sincerely, Brenda Wiemann, Director Cayuga County Office for the Aging
