To start the process, click the Add New Facility button and enter data for each of the fields listed, below. Fields marked with an asterisk are required. A unique facility ID is created at the end of the process.
The Facility name must be between 2 and 45 characters long. The first two characters must be from the letters “A-Z” or “a-z”.
Select the appropriate category from the drop-down menu. If you select Other an additional field will appear with the message Please enter your facility category below. Enter free-form text describing your category in the field provided.
