Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP)

The Emergency & Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP) provides evacuation assistance to residents who need specialized transportation or whose medical needs prevent them from evacuating on their own.

Prior to an emergency, residents who need skilled nursing care, assistance with daily living or have life-saving medical equipment dependent on electricity should register for the EEAP to ensure help is available when needed. Pre-registered residents will receive priority during an emergency. It may also be utilized post-disaster to provide other assistance. 

This program is for individuals with functional and access needs who live alone or with families. Residents in nursing homes, assisted living facilities or group homes are not eligible for this program as these facilities are required by law to develop an emergency plan and make arrangements for their residents to evacuate to a similar facility.
