Oak Parkers with special needs that should be considered in an emergency situation can register with the Village to ensure first responders are aware when dispatched via a 911 call.
Knowing that they are being sent to a home where someone may have a hearing or visual impairment, mobility limitation, cognitive impairment or uses an electrically powered medical device could prove vital to emergency medical personnel.
Residents or their caregivers can register online at www.oak-park.us/911registry. A form also is available via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 708.358.5488. All information is kept confidential and should be updated annually.
