The Salem County Department of Health & Human Services, the Salem County Prosecutor’s Office, the Salem County Sheriff’s Office, and the Salem County Office of Emergency Management is excited to announce the launch of the Salem County Special Needs Registry.
Through the collaboration of these county entities, a registry was created as a voluntary service open to anyone who lives in Salem County that is affected in some way by a physical, mental, or developmental disability. If an emergency arises, dispatch will then notify emergency responders to better assist the registrant in their response.
When an individual registers themselves or a loved one, the information is shared with Salem County dispatch. If an emergency were to occur, dispatch can share these crucial details, a current photo and emergency contact information with first responders. This registry will communicate Salem County resident’s special needs information and enable the best possible response and utilization of resources.
For information or to register yourself or a loved one, please visit https://snr.salemcountynj.gov. If you need assistance registering, please contact Jenna Hogate 856-935-7510 x8403 .
