Disability indicators available for cell phone callers

News: **Update to MA 911 Disability Indicator Form**

Massachusetts 9-1-1 now gives the option for individuals with disabilities to register their cell phone number on the MA 911 Disability Indicator Form. (Previously, only landlines could be registered.) If someone who completes this form calls 9-1-1 from any location in Massachusetts, the disability code they select appears on the dispatcher’s screen. The first responders are then notified that someone may require additional assistance.

If there are several cell phone numbers associated with an address, you can include all of the numbers on one form.

After completing the form, drop it off at your local police station for processing. https://www.mass.gov/doc/disability-indicator-form/download
