What to Do if You Have Special Needs

May 2022

Register medical necessities with SVEC

SVEC recognizes that many of our members have unique needs. In some cases, they may be immobile or reliant on medical equipment or oxygen.
It is important for members with medical needs who are dependent on electricity to register with SVEC so we can notify you of planned or extended outages. You should also keep the information SVEC has on file for you current. To update your information, please visit our office or download the Medical Necessity Form.

Register with County Emergency Management

The Florida Division of Emergency Management allows citizens with special needs to register with their county emergency management agency.

Information submitted to the registry will only be used for planning and, if necessary, to provide emergency or disaster services. Residents of all Florida counties can register using the online Florida Special Needs Registry. Residents of Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette, and Suwannee counties can also request a special needs registration form by visiting or calling their county’s emergency management office:
