The Access and Functional Needs Registry is a secure database of information administered by the St. Louis County Department of Human Services containing information about elderly or disabled individuals who may need additional or special assistance in the event of an emergency.
The Registry is intended to serve as an emergency preparedness tool whereby the elderly, disabled, and those with mobility needs provide information about any medical or physical conditions that could interfere with their ability to respond to disasters or emergencies in a safe and timely manner.
St. Louis County emergency response agencies can use this information to better plan and more effectively provide emergency response for those that may need additional assistance during these events. It is the policy of the Department of Human Services that all Registry information remains strictly confidential. Legislation was passed in the current session to exempt registry information from Missouri’s Sunshine Law.
This Registry will bring St. Louis County into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act by providing an accommodation for their needs in case of emergency.
Main target group: Older people with chronic health conditions or disability
Other target group(s): Persons with disabilities.
Desired outcome for older people:
Meet their basic needs
- Disasters and emergencies
