Dickinson County has announced the introduction of the S.A.Id Program.
What is the S.A.Id. Program?
The S.A.Id. (Special Needs Alerts and Identification) Program provides local first responders with the resources to identify and assist individuals with special needs who find themselves in emergency situations.
This program allows parents, guardians, caregivers, or individuals the opportunity to complete a form that gives Dickinson County First Responders permission to create a specialized alert in their communication database. The S.A.Id. Alert defines the individual’s condition and/or needs to first responders prior to their arrival to an incident, thereby improving their response, interaction, and communication with the individual.
Who should participate?
Individuals with a physical or mental impairment including those with an increased risk for chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions that require specialized assistance to best serve their needs and provide for increased safety for the individual and First Responders.
