The Saint Paul Mayor’s Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities and the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center have developed a form for use by Ramsey County residents with disabilities.  This form allows a person with a disability living in Ramsey County to inform the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center of any special conditions, medications, and/or allergies that should be taken into account by emergency responders.  It also informs the Emergency Communications Center of medical contacts and of trusted individuals that can assist police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and other emergency personnel in entering or securing the individual’s home during an emergency.
