Planning for the needs of vulnerable populations during a disaster is a key component of public health emergency preparedness planning. 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 who are disabled, frail or have significant health issues.
Fargo Cass Public Health has created a pre-registration system for all of Cass County 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.
How to Register
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. If you may need assistance during a disaster, register today by calling 701-241-1360 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
