Vulnerable Persons Registry (a.k.a. Special Needs Registry)
Anyone who may know a person(s) affected by the Cougar Creek Fire, who meets the criteria of a “vulnerable person” with the potential for special needs during evacuation, we would like to suggest that you sign up for the county’s ‘Vulnerable Persons Registry’.
The Chelan County Special Needs Registry is a voluntary registry of individuals who would require assistance in the event of an emergency. This assistance could be as simple as advising a person of a situation in the vicinity of their residence to those who need evacuation assistance in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. This registry alerts emergency responders as to a resident’s address and gives them the vital information they need to better meet the resident's needs. It is important that emergency personnel know where to find you, and how best to meet some of your requirements during a disaster requiring evacuation.
To register, you may print off and fill out the included form and email it to, Sheriff.firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to:
Chelan County Emergency Management ATTN: Vulnerable Persons Registry 206 A Easy Street Wenatchee, WA 98801
You also have the option of calling us, Monday – Thursday, 7am – 5pm at 667-6863 and we can take your information over the phone.
The goal of the registry is to provide Law Enforcement with quick access to critical information so deputies and volunteers can quickly respond and provide effective assistance to the registrant.
