Special Needs Registry

Columbia County has created a Special Needs Registry for Columbia County Residents. This registry is for those individuals with medical conditions who require assistance, have medical devices that utilize electricity, are non-ambulatory, or have restricted mobility. All information collected will be used strictly for emergency management purposes ONLY so that emergency personnel can check in on you in the event of a power outage with loss of phone service. During such an event every effort will be made to assist you. However, depending on the size and scope of the emergency, the resources available may be limited and therefore a guaranteed response cannot be made.

To join the Special Needs Registry:

  1. Review the Registry’s Notice of Privacy Practices, downloadable here.
  2. Acknowledge your receipt of Notice of Privacy Practices and register, either through our electronic registration form or by filling out and mailing in our printable registration form.
    Mail the Special Needs Registration Form to:
    Columbia County Department of Health
    Special Needs Registry
    325 Columbia Street
    Hudson, NY 12534
