Resource: MA Disability Indicator Form

All households that include a resident with a disability should complete and submit a Disability Indicator Form to your local emergency dispatch center (generally at your local police or fire department).  Once registered, if a call goes to 9-1-1 from your home phone, the dispatcher will now see an alert that there is a person with a disability at that address.  Responders will then be better prepared upon arrival. To find more information and a PDF version of the form, click here.
