Residents with Functional or Medical Needs Urged to Register with Health Department

Hurricane season officially begins June 1 which means it’s time for residents along Georgia’s coast to prepare – especially those who may have functional or medical needs and no way to evacuate if a storm is heading our way. The Functional and Medical Needs Registry is made up of residents who may require transport and medical assistance during a hurricane evacuation and have no other resources such as family, friends, neighbors, or church members to help them if they need to evacuate. Residents must apply to be on the registry and are encouraged to register now. FMN Ad District.indd

Those on the Registry will be evacuated to an American Red Cross shelter in an inland county that will likely be in a gymnasium or similar setting and could be several hours away. The Registry is truly a last resort, but if a hurricane is threatening our area, it is important that health department officials know where the most vulnerable residents are located so that evacuation assistance can be provided to them. People living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and personal care homes are not eligible for the Functional and Medical Needs Registry and must follow their facility’s emergency plan.

Functional needs registrants are individuals who may need services to maintain their independence in a shelter. This includes children and adults with physical, sensory, mental health, and cognitive and/or intellectual disabilities affecting their ability to function independently without assistance. Medical needs registrants are individuals who require support of trained medical professionals. This includes those individuals who may need assistance with managing unstable, terminal, or contagious conditions that require observation and ongoing treatment.

To apply, residents should call the Glynn County Health Department at 279-3350. The application and protected health information authorization form can also be downloaded HERE.


 Daily Car Seat Checks

Three out of four car seats is installed incorrectly. Is yours one of them? Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children ages 2-14 and the leading cause of injury-related death for children under two. When installed and used correctly, child car seats and seat belts can prevent injuries and save lives. Come by the Glynn County Health Department for a FREE car seat check Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
