The Rhode Island Special Needs Emergency Registry (RISNER) is overseen by the RI Department of Health. Enrolling in the Special Needs Emergency Registry lets police, fire, and other first responders in your community better prepare for and respond to your needs during a hurricane, storm, or other emergency. Some people may need extra help during a time of emergency, including people who:

•    Use life support systems such as oxygen, respirator, ventilator, dialysis, pacemaker, or are insulin dependent;
•    Have mobility disabilities and use a wheelchair, scooter, walker, cane, or other mobility device;
•    Are visually impaired, blind, hard of hearing, or deaf;
•    Have speech, cognitive, developmental or mental health disabilities;

 2024 Hazard Mitigation & Flood Management Plan (HM&FMP)
Little Compton is preparing a 2024 Hazard Mitigation & Flood Management Plan (HM&FMP) with the goal of reducing the impacts from future disasters on the people and property in Little Compton.  The new plan will update the Town’s 2018 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (FEMA requires a 5-year update) and expand the focus on flood management.  An Advisory Committee is preparing the plan, with the help of a consultant, and is seeking input from the public to inform the plan. Visit the Project Webpage for an overview of the project and details on public outreach activities, including an online Survey and public meetings.
