Special Needs Program

In order to better serve the special needs population of the Borough, and to insure that all agencies have access to a common confidential list, emergency and support services will institute and maintain a City-Wide Special Needs List. The list will be kept strictly confidential, and will only be used by emergency personnel in the event of an emergency such as a fire, flood, serious storm or power failure to provide assistance to those with special needs.

Individuals would be considered special needs if they are: confined to a wheelchair, use or have oxygen present in their home, have mental or physical handicaps, are hearing or sight impaired, elderly and live alone or are senior citizens in need of assistance in an emergency.

Any special needs residents or their care givers are invited to call the Palisades Park Emergency Services Unit at (201) 585-4145 to obtain a special needs registration form, or have any questions about the program answered.
