About the Residential Emergency Response Information Form
Time is of the essence in an emergency. Sometimes a few minutes can make the difference. For people with disabilities needing accessible and adapted emergency services, precious time can be wasted while emergency responders get the information they need.
To address this need, and make it possible for emergency responders to get information before they arrive at the scene, the Saint Paul Mayor’s Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities and the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center developed a form for use by Ramsey County residents with disabilities.
This Residential Emergency Response Information Form allows a person with a disability living in Ramsey County to voluntarily inform the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center of any special conditions, medications, and/or allergies that should be taken into account by emergency responders.
This form also informs the Emergency Communications Center of medical contacts and of trusted individuals that can assist police officers, deputies, firefighters, paramedics, and other emergency personnel in entering or securing the individual’s home during an emergency. Form usage is voluntary and needs to be updated yearly.
The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office encourages people to use this form. Information is securely kept by the Emergency Communications Center until needed by emergency responders on their way to help the person who filled out the form.
