The Brazos Valley is setting up a new system to help residents with disabilities during a disaster.
The Special Needs Registry would include the seven county area that makes up the Brazos Valley.
Each county is trying to get residents who may be homebound or have special needs to register their information.
The service will contact them during a severe storm or other emergency to see if they need any help.
It is the first service of it's kind in the state, and emergency management workers hope it will better serve special needs residents.
If you or someone you know has a disability call your county government or 211 to register.
Viewers with disabilities can get assistance accessing this station's FCC Public Inspection File by contacting the station with the information listed below. Questions or concerns relating to the accessibility of the FCC's online public file system should be directed to the FCC at 888-225-5322, 888-835-5322 (TTY), or firstname.lastname@example.org.
