The Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management participates in the state-wide registry for residents with access and functional needs. The Register Ready initiative is voluntary and free program designed to assist first responders and emergency planners in identifying those residents that may need assistance in evacuating in advance of an emergency and so that emergency management may develop the necessary plans to support those needs. It will also aid emergency planners in the development of shelter plans for those residents with Access and functional Needs. The information collected through a secure on-line portal is only accessible to emergency management and first responders.
