First Responders Disability Registry
This program is a new and unique plan to aid Yonkers residents with special needs in emergency situations. Specialized information is entered into a database to be accessed, with alerts, to Yonkers Police and Fire Departments and EMS services in the event of an emergency located at a resident’s home. The goal of the program is to eliminate or lessen emotional trauma, fear and conflict when first responders enter homes of those with special needs.
Those with the following special needs, but not limited to, should register:
- physical and medical challenges
- developmental challenges, mental illness, PTSD
- vision and hearing challenges
- aged, language barriers, hoarders, service animals, etc.
Enrollment in the registry is dependent upon self-reporting. Privacy concerns are recognized and addressed. Enrollment is fully compliant with applicable regulations.
