Special Assistance Form

Citizens of Adams County, Do you need Special Care or Assistance during an Emergency?

We will compile a list of all Disabled persons located in Adams County who need special assistance when an Emergency Arises, such as Fire, Evacuation, etc.  This information is added to the E-911 System, so when we receive a call for help, the system will automatically identify your disability and the type of assistance you might need.

If a family member or yourself has a physical disability, of any kind, please complete the form below and return it to the Adams County Department of Emergency Services, 230 Greenamyer Lane, Gettysburg, Pa  17325.
