Welcome to the Special Needs Registry Website
The Douglas County Special Needs Registry is a database containing information about individuals in Douglas County with special needs who may require assistance in the event of a disaster. The information may also be used to assist emergency personnel and volunteers in providing assistance. Participation in the Special Needs Registry is voluntary.
Our department's mission is to assess and plan for hazards and emergencies and work with other public safety and municipal agencies to ensure public welfare. As a pre-planning tool, the Special Needs Registry should be considered for all people who have special medical needs (i.e. oxygen or life support systems that are dependent upon electrical power) or have physical disabilities that would make it difficult to independently follow public safety directions, such as evacuation, if the need arose. The County will use reasonable efforts to protect this information including pursuing legal action to prevent disclosure when deemed necessary by the County. However, the County does not warrant that the information provided will be held confidential under the Colorado Open Records Act. Please do not provide information that you believe would compromise your security.
