When ordered to evacuate in the event of inclement weather or any other emergency situation, healthcare services in our county will be disrupted. Disruption may range from longer response time and/or reduced services to no healthcare services at all.

We strongly encourage all residents to evacuate when ordered — especially those who need continuous access to uninterrupted healthcare services. Below is just a partial list of patients who may be at significantly higher risk during times of healthcare disruption. If you or someone in your care needs timely access to medical attention, following local orders to evacuate is always the right thing to do.

◙ Expectant mothers

◙ Dialysis patients

◙ IV Therapy patients

◙ Patients with home equipment requiring electricity (oxygen, ventilator, etc.)

◙ Those currently receiving Home Health services

◙ Anyone discharged from the hospital within the past 30 days

◙ Anyone who visited the ER within the past 30 days
