Lakehurst Wants To Know Where People Are During Major Storms

The police department is maintaining a registry of those individuals who may need special assistance during major storms

The Lakehurst Borough Police Department is inviting our residents or their loved ones who have special needs to register with the department.

The police department is maintaining a registry of those individuals who may need special assistance during times of major storms, long-term power outgages, or evacuations.

Registering with the police department will allow officials to quickly and efficently indentify those residents who may need special assistance during an emergency, the police said.

Any Lakehurst Borough resident, regardless of age, who has a disability, special health care need or may require additional assistance during a time of emergency, should enroll, police said. These include people on home oxygen, a respirator, ventilator, dialysis, or who are insulin dependent; people who use a wheelchair, walker or cane; people who are visually impaired, blind, and hard of hearing or deaf; people with developmental or mental health disabilities; or people who use assistive animals or prosthesis.

Strict confidentiality is maintained at all times with the information provided. Only the police department and emergency responders will have access to the information in the registrty.

Registration forms can be picked up at the police department or printed online at our website www.lakehurstpolice.org under the forms section. Once registered, individuals will need to re-register annually and anytime their contact information changes.

Once completed please return your form to the police department.

For more information, contact Oficer Jeffrey Emmons at (732) 657-7812 ext. 311 or at jemmons@lakehurstpolice.org
