Pre-registration also helps to identify a person’s disability, plus the special equipment or specific assistance needed during an evacuation. This includes transportation to a family member’s or friend’s house (within the county) or to the Special Needs Shelter if you have no other sheltering option. Special Needs Shelter registrants are allowed to bring their pets to the temporary location. To streamline the registration process and ensure a smooth transition to the temporary location, DOH-Citrus is asking residents who are medically stable but need help with basic tasks or use an electronic medical device and have no other evacuation option to pre-register for the Special Needs Shelter by filling out the Voluntary Special Needs Program Registration found on the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office website.
As a reminder, the Special Needs Shelter should be a last resort especially because of COVID-19. The Special Needs Shelter is operated and staffed by DOH-Citrus, Citrus County Schools, County Government and Emergency Management employees, and is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are oxygen dependent, have mobility issues and other physical, mental and cognitive impairments, and have no other evacuation option.
