Emergency Preparedness Registry
What is the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Registry?
The Registry is a database of individuals in Alameda County who may need assistance in the event of a local emergency or disaster. The registry is voluntary and collects personal information about you, your residence, and specific personal needs.
Who is the Registry for?
The Registry is for Alameda County residents who may need assistance in the event of a local emergency or disaster. Target populations include individuals who, if left unattended for 24-48 hours, are at risk of serious illness, injury or death such as:
- Frail Seniors
- Persons with Disabilities
- Nonambulatory Individuals (e.g. confined to bed, unable to walk or get around unassisted)
What is the purpose of the Registry?
The purpose of the registry is to identify individuals in Alameda County who may need assistance preparing for and responding to a local emergency or disaster. The registry is also intended to link individuals to resources. The registry will provide emergency responders with important information about people in areas affected by an emergency or disaster, who may need specialized help. Emergency responders will use this information to develop a more effective response. The registry information will also be used to assist emergency planners to develop policies and procedures to address community needs in the event of a disaster.
