5 Million Floridians Register Emergency Info Online

If you are involved in a crash, who would you want police to notify?  In Florida, residents have the ability to make that decision before an emergency strikes. To date, more than 5 million Floridians have registered their emergency contacts with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.  

Gov. Rick Scott signed a proclamation to name Oct. 2 - 8, 2011, Register Your Emergency Contact Information Week in Florida, and DHSMV is teaming up with the Division of Emergency Management to encourage all Floridians to register their contacts. 

The Emergency Contact Information program allows licensed drivers and identification card holders to submit two contacts to notify in the event of an emergency, such as a vehicle crash. The information can then be accessed only in the event of an emergency and only by law enforcement officers to find designated contacts.  

Signing up is quick and convenient.  Register from the convenience of your home or at work through the Internet at and at any driver license office in the state, to include those operated by county tax collectors. There is no cost to register your contact information.
