The Allegheny County Department of Emergency Services has developed a Special Needs Registry to provide information about residents who have special needs that would be helpful for emergency responders to know when responding to a home.
Any Allegheny County Resident who requires additional assistance due to special needs during a police, fire or medical emergency may submit information to the Registry. This can include:
Individual with Autism;
Those who are Deaf/Blind;
Those who have Intellectual Disabilities;
Individuals who have Physical Challenges
In the even that the person with special needs is unable to submit information on their own, a person who is authorized to act on their behalf may do so.
This is a voluntary registry.
The information provided will be shared with 911, Fire, Police, EMS, Emergency Planners and First Responders in times of crisis.
