Rapid and accurate assessment of damage immediately following disasters is crucial in determining extent of damage, additional resources, and type(s) of assistance needed.

LaSalle County Emergency Management Agency offers anyone with a functional need an opportunity to sign yourself or a loved one up to be identified prior to a disaster that may require assistance with evacuation. The purpose of this registry is to identify resources that may be needed to assist in carrying out evacuation orders.
