Martin County Special Needs Shelter includes limited medical oversight and needs such as oxygen, as well as evacuation transportation to and from the shelter. When evacuation orders are issued within the County the registrants are contacted and advised when transportation will arrive to pick them up from a home and take them to a shelter. The program also provides for citizens in need of transportation due to economic difficulties, a disability, or lack of transportation from their home to a shelter. Residents must pre-register and registration must be renewed each year.

Who is Eligible for this Program?
