The Access and Functional Needs Registry is a secure emergency preparedness registry maintained by the St. Louis County Department of Human Services. It is designed for older adults or adults with disabilities who may need additional or special assistance in the event of an emergency.
The Registry is intended to serve as an emergency preparedness tool whereby older adults, people living with disabilities, and those with temporary mobility needs provide information about any medical or physical conditions that could interfere with their ability to respond to disasters or emergencies in a safe and timely manner. St. Louis County emergency response agencies can use this information to better plan and more effectively provide emergency response for those that may need additional assistance during these events. St. Louis County Department of Human Services will provide strict oversight of the use of information.
It is the policy of the Department of Human Services that all Registry information remains strictly confidential. Individually identifiable participant information such as name, address, phone number, and medical information will be made available to St. Louis county emergency response agencies for the purpose of coordinating emergency response. Aggregate Registry information, such as non-individually identifiable participant information, by geographic area will be available to St. Louis County emergency response agencies for the purpose of planning for disasters or other emergencies.
