Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP)
Anyone who is unable to evacuate and/or shelter on their own, who may require specialized transportation assistance or whose medical needs prevent them from evacuating on their own should register with the EEAP registry prior to an emergency evacuation. Individuals on the registry will receive priority and assistance evacuating to a facility appropriate for their level of care.The program is specifically for individuals who live alone or with their families, not those residing in nursing homes, assisted living facilities or group homes. Applications are available in English, Spanish and Creole. Call 3-1-1 or download the application:
