The Town of East Hampton Department of Human Services has developed a computerized registry of all town residents with special needs who need to receive evacuation, shelter or other assistance during natural disasters like hurricanes or severe flooding.

This is a free and voluntary registration. The information provided will be confidential in accordance with state law. It will be used by emergency personnel only to assure safe and timely evacuation/assistance.
