Clay County Public Health and Fargo Cass Public Health would like to remind residents of the Vulnerable Populations Registries.
At risk or vulnerable populations are often those who live independently or with the help of a caregiver, 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 with a disability, frail or have significant health issues
· Elderly with no family/friend assistance
· Social or behavioral challenges
The Vulnerable Population Registries have been designed to assist public health and other emergency workers to better plan for future disasters. Registering into the systems 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, or know of someone who may need assistance, contact your local public health department Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
