Middlesex County launches Special Needs Registry (SNR) to enhance emergency response

March 11, 2024

Middlesex County has launched the Special Needs Registry (SNR) to enhance the safety of its residents with special needs. This no-cost, voluntary service led by the Office of the County Prosecutor, is open to individuals with special needs residing, working, or attending school in the County, aiming to provide crucial information to first responders in the event of an emergency.

In addition to offering valuable details about individuals with mental or physical disabilities, the SNR provides registrants with a distinctive decal for their residence’s front entrance and vehicle windows. This visual aid facilitates efficient communication and response from emergency personnel. The use of the decals by registrants is strictly voluntary and is not required.

Individuals can register themselves or be registered by a family member or caretaker by visiting middlesexcounty.gov/specialneedsregistry and supplying essential personal identifiers to a secure database such as name, address, date of birth, height, weight, emergency contacts, and specific details about their special needs. The process ensures a comprehensive and accurate snapshot that aids first responders in their efforts during a crisis or an emergency.
