Emergency Preparedness

The New Orleans Health Department Emergency Preparedness Program works with NOLA Ready to provide public health and medical information during emergencies.  

Special Needs Registry

If you live in New Orleans and need help during an emergency because you have special medical needs or have trouble walking, please sign up for the Special Needs Registry.

Signing up in the Registry does not guarantee help from the City of New Orleans, but it does let first responders know who needs help. Call 311 or  click here to fill out the Special Needs Registry application.

Get Ready for Hurricane Season

We have information for people with medical and mobility needs, families, non-English speakers, healthcare facilities, senior living centers, and agencies working with New Orleanians. 

Check out NOLA Ready for more information for hurricanes and other emergencies.

Want to volunteer during a public health emergency?

The New Orleans Medical Reserve Corps offers opportunities for both medical and non-medical volunteers to promote public health preparedness through outreach and to serve during emergencies at evacuation sites, shelters and points of dispensing. To learn how to volunteer visit our volunteer page.
