Cecil County 2012 Needs Assessment Registery

Monday, October 1, 2012  Cecil County Department of Emergency Services (CCDES) is pleased to announce, with the conclusion of National Preparedness Month, is proud to provide you with their 2012 Needs Assessment Registry Form. This form contains questions to critical information that is beneficial to emergency service professionals and first responders in emergency situations. Persons that should submit are amongst those that special consideration must be made in order to successfully evacuate a residence should the need arise. CCDES, Police agencies, and Fire Departments utilize this information as a planning tool to determine the resources that may be required to provide assistance in the event of a major emergency or disaster.

CCDES intend to update our current list that was created in 2009 and maintained over the past three years by an opt-in volunteer submission. Part of the updating process is deleting old or outdated information. A formal letter will be mailed to all those currently on the list.

**Please be aware** The intention of this form is to achieve a residential perspective that touches on criteria that is important in a major emergency situation only. We have identified target areas of mobility, cognitive, electrical dependence, and various other medical criteria to be the most significant information our emergency service professionals need to know to assist someone if the emergency happens to encompass the home of the registered resident. This is information will NOT be utilized for any other purpose.

***It is important to note that those residents that are currently within a skilled nursing, assisted living, or group home setting should not complete this form and we instead request that the management of such facilities contact us directly regarding emergency planning considerations.
 
Submission of the forms may be mailed to:
 
Cecil County Department of Emergency Services
107 Chesapeake Blvd, Suite 108
Elkton, MD 21921
