Functional Needs Registry

What Is The Functional Needs Registry?
Click here for a full description of the program.

The purpose of the Flathead County Functional Needs Registry is to provide emergency responders in Flathead County with important information from individuals that may require assistance during an emergency, such as tornado, flood, blizzard, and power outage or disease outbreak. This program is voluntary and in no way ensures that the individual completing this form will receive immediate or preferential treatment in an emergency. This program will merely provide the emergency response community with information that is pertinent to developing an effective response. The Flathead County Functional Needs Registry in no way replaces the responsibility of individuals to have their own emergency plan.

Filling out this form is strictly voluntary and the data will be kept strictly confidential. It will be available only to local emergency assistance officials. Please provide all information as completely as possible.

NOTE: If you have already submitted a registration through this website and need to make changes to it, please contact us with your changes instead of submitting a new form.
