City of Bloomington, Indiana

The Bloomington/Monroe County Special Needs Registry for first responders is designed to help in emergency situations. It can be vitally important for a first responder (a police officer, a fire fighter or an emergency medical technician) to know that a resident at the address where help is needed is visually impaired, hearing impaired, mobility impaired or has other similar needs.

People who have disabilities that first responders might need to know about and who want to be included in this database may register here.

People also may print out a form from the web site, fill it out and mail it to the address on the form.

The form is available in alternative formats and in Spanish upon request. If you need help completing the form, you may call 812-349-3429 or e-mail

Once your information is in the registry, when someone from your residence calls 911, dispatch employees will know immediately about your special needs and will be better able to provide appropriate services. Once you're registered, someone will contact you every six months to make sure that the information is still current and accurate and to update the information as necessary.

It's vital that you cooperate with the updating process to keep your name in the registry.
