SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove residents with special needs, who may require outside assistance during a natural disaster or other declared emergency, have an opportunity during the next several days to identify themselves to the township.
Its staff has begun migrating Lower Pottsgrove’s former “special needs registry,” which the police department and other first responders relied upon in declared emergencies and other situations, to become part of a larger Montgomery County-managed database, according to police Chief Michael Foltz. It is being updated now because the county and its municipalities have changed emergency notification systems as part of the county’s “ReadyMontco” program.
Those who have registered in the past as township residents can expect a call from Lower Pottsgrove during the next week or so, the department announced Monday in a status update item on its Facebook page. Callers will simply verify current information on file, or add new information if needs have changed.
Not comfortable providing such information over the phone? No problem, the department added. Directions will be offered by callers on how to update registry information online.
Those who now have special needs but have net yet been registered can also add themselves online, here. Instructions for creating a new or updated registry profile also are included in the YouTube video, above, or found here.
