Did you know? Multnomah County has a Voluntary Emergency Registry.

The Registry is a list of persons who need help evacuating their home during an emergency, or who would be unable to evacuate without special notification from emergency response personnel. The registry also includes people who would be unable to remain at home without assistance following a disaster. Information in this list will be provided to the Bureau of Emergency Communications (911) and other emergency response personnel from the City of Portland and Gresham and Multnomah County.

Those with Internet access may visit the Aging and Disability Resource Connection and click on the link at the foot of the splash page. Or you can simply call the Helpline, 503-988-3646, or City of Portland, 503-823-2036, for assistance in registering.
