Vulnerable Population Registry

The Vulnerable Population Registry is for residents who are at risk due to disability, frailty or health issues, regardless of age, who elect to stay at home in the event of a hurricane or other emergency. The Registry is a partnership between Broward County and municipalities to help emergency responders better plan for recoveries from hurricanes and other emergencies.

Municipalities may use the registry to help evaluate resident needs and to assist in planning their response in an emergency. While

registering in the database is not a guarantee that you will be provided services

or placed on a priority list for responders, it will help responders be better prepared to meet resident needs in a recovery.


You can register online at or by calling 311 in Broward or 954-831-4000, TTY 954-831-3940.  All the information provided will be held in the strictest confidence as required by State law.

Additional Information

The Vulnerable Population Registry does not automatically register you for a special needs shelter or evacuation transportation. For sheltering and transportation information visit for residents at risk or with special medical needs.
