HILLSBOROUGH — Orange County is accepting applications for its Disaster Special Needs Registry in preparation for the hurricane season.
The registry, maintained by the Department of Social Services, is used to contact individuals with special needs who might need assistance in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or ice storm.
Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis. Generally, those eligible do not require hospital care but might need assistance beyond what is provided in a standard Red Cross Shelter.
For more information, call Felicia McLean-Torry at the Orange County Department of Social Services at 245-2884.
