Any resident may register for assistance under the STEAR program if they have any condition, healthcare need, or may need additional assistance during an emergency. Some examples include individuals who:
- Don't speak English well, or have any kind of disability which keeps them from communicating easily.
- Individuals who may need transportation assistance during an evacuation.
- Require electricity for life-sustaining equipment (such as life support machines, electric wheelchairs, or are insulin-dependent and require refrigeration)
You may complete registration forms for individuals who may not be able to complete the form themselves. Be sure to obtain their permission first.
Please note that registration with STEAR does not guarantee any delivery of services by responders, and should not replace developing your own emergency plan.
