What process is used to determine Special Needs Sheltering?

Santa Rosa County Division of Emergency Management maintains the Special Needs registry. Pre-registering is a must for the Special Needs Shelter. Upon receiving the application, the address and appropriate fire department are verified, along with whether the applicant lives in an evacuation and / or flood zone. Santa Rosa County Department of Health reviews the medical portion of the application to assign the most appropriate shelter to meet the applicants' needs. This is why it is of the utmost importance to list all of the applicant's medical history. Once the application is returned to the Division of Emergency Management the information is entered in the database. The applicant will be sent a copy of original application with shelter assignment.
