DON'T WAIT FOR AN EMERGENCY!
Special Needs cards are mailed to some of the residents of the East Liverpool area. If you need special assistance in the event of an emergency, please fill out the card each year and mail it back. If you live outside the East Liverpool area, send a post card or letter to the Emergency Management Agency with your name, address and telephone number, the extent of your difficulty and any other pertinent information about the state of your health (medicines, diet, etc…). This information will be kept confidential and will be placed on file so that, in the event of an emergency, you will receive the necessary assistance to safety. The card may also be completed online by clicking the following links: Special Needs Card or Farmer's Special Needs Card.
