Vulnerable Population and Special Needs Citizens

At the last meeting for the Council of Fort Lauderdale Civic Associations, Battalion Chief Jo-Ann Lorber presented information about the Vulnerable Population Registration and Special Needs Registry, and encouraged the Civic Associations to have their vulnerable, elderly, and special needs neighbors register so the City and County can ensure the safety of these residents in the event of an all-hazards emergency.  If you are in this category, or have a neighbor that is in this category, please visit Broward County’s Emergency Preparedness for Residents At Risk webpage and pre-register, or help your neighbor pre-register, for these important services.
