The following survey will assist Fort Bend County departments, such as the Office of Emergency Management and Health & Human Services, plan how to assist people with functional and medical needs in the county during an emergency or natural disaster.
This survey is not a request for hurricane evacuation transportation, since Fort Bend County is not an evacuation county. However, if severe weather is anticipated, or if there is severe wind damage or flooding after a storm, some people may need to be moved to a safer place.
During a disaster or an emergency, people with functional and medical needs may require assistance if they experience power outages, need medications or need medical support. This survey will help us identify people who may need assistance during an emergency and assist us in planning for such an event.
If you have a disability, use medical equipment at home, are hearing or vision impaired, or are elderly, and anticipate needing assistance please complete the following survey.
If you have any questions, please contact:
Fort Bend County Health & Human Services | 4520 Reading Road, Suite A | Rosenberg, TX 77471 | (281) 238-3514
