Volusia County Special Needs Shelters

Physically, mentally and sensory disabled residents and those who need supplemental oxygen should register for the Special Needs Shelters program with Volusia County Emergency Management. The program provides assistance during evacuations. Evacuees should be accompanied by a caregiver if this type of assistance normally is needed. Special needs shelters are not for isolation patients or people who need 24-hour dedicated care, a hospital bed, ventilator, or other complex care. These individuals should discuss other shelter arrangements with their physician or home health service provider or caregiver.
