Westchester County Community Emergency Notification System & Special Needs Registry

Westchester County would like to contact you. The county will provide information to you before, during or after a disaster. Depending on the type of emergency, you might get emails, test messages or automated phone calls about: how to prepare; protecting your family; where to go; steps to recovery. Sign up for the County’s emergency notification system and select the emergency banner at the top of the page. Your information will be kept confidential and only used in a major emergency.

Residents who would need special assistance if they had to leave their homes in an emergency should sign up for Westchester County’s Special Needs Registry. The new registry, coordinated by the Department of Emergency Services, is for people with physical or mental disabilities who live on their own. While the database is confidential, it will be shared with local municipalities to use in their emergency planning efforts.

Residents can register by calling 211, going online or by obtaining an application from the Office of Emergency Management at 914-864-5450. People are also able to register a family member or friend in need.
