RI urges those with health concerns to register

PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Rhode Island officials are urging residents with special health needs to register with the state ahead of Hurricane Irene.

The state Department of Health said Saturday that residents with disabilities or chronic health conditions should enroll in the Special Needs Emergency Registry. Residents aren't guaranteed assistance if they do, but the registry will help emergency medical teams assist those who need it most.

Among those who should register are residents who use a respirator or home oxygen or are on dialysis or insulin dependent. Those who use a wheelchair or walker or who are deaf or visually impaired should also enroll.
