HUNTINGTON WOODS INTRODUCES NEW EMERGENCY CONTACT TOOL FOR PUBLIC SAFETY

The Huntington Woods Public Safety Department is introducing a new service for residents to assist first responders. Residents that fill out an Alert Form for Dispatchers can have important information on file so dispatchers can relay it quickly to first responders. The project was developed by the City’s Senior Advisory Committee to identify seniors and other vulnerable residents in an emergency and to ensure Public Safety can respond appropriately to calls for service. By providing additional emergency information to 9-1-1, the City can help residents faster in an emergency.

Anyone sharing a home or who has any of the following should consider filling out a form for Public Safety:

  • Does anyone have epilepsy?
  • Is anyone a diabetic?
  • Is anyone on oxygen?
  • Is anyone not ambulatory?
  • Is there a Do not resuscitate order on file?
  • If yes to any of the above, where are they located in the home?

Residents interested in filling out the form or learning more about the new initiative can contact Amy Sullivan at 248.581.2632 or asullivan@hwmi.org.
