Individuals and Families

  • Make a kit.

    • It is important for individuals and families to have a Household Plan that includes the needs of household pets.
    • Get to know your neighbors and what their needs are. Plan together and be ready. 
  • Stay Informed.

Access and Functional Needs Populations

  • Access and Functional Needs populations are those populations whose members may have additional needs before, during, and after an incident in functional areas including but not limited to: maintaining independence, communication, transportation, supervision and medical care.
  • Historically, individuals with access and functional needs are disparately affected by emergencies. Special considerations must be put into place to account for these populations before, during and after an emergency.
    • Enroll in Fairfax County’s Functional Needs Registry through Fairfax Alerts.
