What is VPR

The Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR) is a free, voluntary and confidential service that improves the safety of vulnerable residents living at home. This is done by communicating directly with registrants during emergencies and by sharing key information to first responders about those on the VPR.

Criteria for Eligibility
The VPR is available to residents who experience any of the following:

  • Mobility issues
  • Visual or hearing impairments
  • Developmental disabilities or cognitive impairments
  • Challenges related to mental health
  • Individuals who require electricity for life-sustaining equipment (life support, oxygen or dialysis)
  • Temporary limitations (due to illness or recovery from surgery)
  • Applicants must have a permanent address and at least one (1) active contact number on their application.

In an Emergency

During an emergency, a member of the VPR team will reach out to registrants directly. If responding to a 9-1-1 call, first responders will have access to critical information.
