I leave details below for historical interest, but in August 2023, a representative from Oakland Fire Department notified us that this program was discontinued in 2016. You can no longer sign up for this program; I have removed the link below to the questionnaire. Sorry for misleading you.
The City of Oakland 9-1-1 Registry Program allows people with disabilities & senior citizens to provide information about their health & medical needs to the City. This information is used for the purpose of proving effective & fast emergency services. Click here for the questionnaire designed to elicit information from individuals with disabilities & senior citizens who wish to participate in the 9-1-1 Registry Program. The program is free & voluntary to eligible participants.
The purpose of the 9-1-1 Registry is to create a systematic mechanism to identify people who may require special assistance in the event of a disaster. The first component of this system is to create a voluntary, confidential and secure database of frail senior citizens and persons with disabilities, within the 9-1-1 Computer Aided Dispatch System (CAD). This voluntary registry will provide immediate information to fire, medical and law enforcement; 9-1-1 emergency response personnel. Goals of the Oakland 9-1-1 Disaster Registry for Seniors and Disabled Persons is to create and maintain a 24 hour accessible database of highly vulnerable populations in the City of Oakland, in order to better assist dispatchers and firefighters responding to 9-1-1 calls and provide vital, life safety information to emergency first responders.
