Special Needs Registry

Allegheny County Emergency Management Agency's Special Needs Registry allows residents with physical, mental health or intellectual disabilities to provide information to the Department of Emergency Services. This voluntary information may then be shared with those responding to a home for a police, fire or medical emergency. The Special Needs Registry is intended only for those who live independently and not in a residential needs facility such as a nursing home or group home. The Special Needs Registry can be found at the County’s website at www.alleghenycounty.us/specialneedsregistry Information provided through the Registry will be programmed to appear on the screen when an emergency call is made from the home. This will allow dispatchers to alert emergency responders that there may be a unique situation in the home involving a person with special needs.

Premise Alert

The information provided on the Alert Form will help emergency responders (Police, Fire and EMS) to know when responding to your home.  The Premise Alert Request Forms can be found on Etna Borough website under forms, or can be downloarded HERE.  When the form is completed, please return it to the borough building.

Your participation in the program is voluntary.
