Special Medical Needs

The Functional Needs Registry is made up of residents who may require transportation and medical assistance and have no other resources such as family or friends who can help them if they must evacuate when a hurricane is threatening our area. Residents must apply and qualify to be on the Registry. In the event of an EVACUATION, local hospitals will not accept Functional/Access/Medical needs citizens. Therefore, if residents do not register, they will need to make their own plans. To apply, residents should call the Effingham County Health Department at 912-754-6484 or you can download the application (PDF). Completed applications must be mailed to:
Effingham County Health Department
P.O. Box 350
Springfield, GA 31329
