ECRIN (Evacuating County Residents In Need) is a free, voluntary, community outreach service to assist elected officials and emergency responders in municipalities across York County in obtaining important information on special needs residents living in their communities.

ECRIN also assists residents by ensuring that all emergency response units (fire, police, EMA, etc) have access to the same information about each person — thus decreasing confusion during an emergency situation. This standardized information decreases safety risks to both responders and residents in emergency situations.  The system is entirely voluntary — elected officials in each municipality determine whether they want to participate, and residents signing up for the service must also sign a form.  Under state law, municipalities are required to keep information on special needs persons in their area, and ECRIN provides an organized system to do so.

ECRIN can be used for more than just evacuation purposes — the information it provides is also helpful in any emergency situation (fire, chemical spill, police incident, etc).

The ECRIN program consists of a paper resident sign-up sheet, an excel spreadsheet for municipal use (where the resident data is entered to provide an electronic copy), as well as a GIS (Geospatial Information System, or, digital mapping) mapping program for the municipality, which is accessed using a free, download-able mapping utility. The mapping portion of the program allows emergency responders to quickly view the area in question and gather basic, non-identifying information on special needs folks in that area.
