Vulnerable Persons Registry - English

The Vulnerable Persons Registry promotes communication between vulnerable persons, the people who support them and law enforcement/first responders. The information provided gives responders access to critical information so that they can quickly respond and provide effective assistance.

A "Vulnerable Person" is defined as an individual who, due to medical, cognitive, mental health or a physical condition, may exhibit patterns of behavior that may pose a risk to that individual or others. Examples may include someone who has:

  • Atypical behaviors such as:
    • Aggression
    • Inability to communicate
    • Irrational fear
    • Oversensitivity to sensory stimulus
    • Physical instability
    • Wandering, etc.
  • Autism
  • Dementia
  • Brain injury
  • Cerebral palsy

Basically, they require some special assistance during an evacuation or other emergency response.
