Register Ready, formerly We Care Program
NOTICE TO RESIDENTS WHO SIGNED UP FOR “WE CARE” PROGRAM
The State of New Jersey has adopted “REGISTER READY” as it’s Special Needs Registry for Disasters and therefore is replacing the We Care Program.
Register Ready is a free, voluntary and confidential web-based program.
The program allows residents with disabilities or access and functional needs and their families, friends, caregivers and associates an opportunity to provide information to emergency response agencies so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster or other emergency.
ALL information collected is confidential and will not be available to the public. The information will be held securely and only used for emergency response and planning.
You are encouraged to register electronically, if possible, by accessing www.registerready.nj.gov . Alternatively, you can call New Jersey’s toll-free 2-1-1 telephone service. This service will register people, offer free translation, and provide TTY services for the hearing-impaired.
Additional information can be obtained from you local, county and state emergency management agencies.
For more information on this program, you can contact the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department, Office of Emergency Management at 1-800-331-8152.
