The Calgary Police Service has created a database where people can register if they have a physical, mental, or medical condition that means they may require special attention in an emergency. Now we need you to do your part. If you are a vulnerable person or care for a vulnerable person, then we need you to give us your information. Your privacy will be protected and the information you provide will only be used by the police, fire, and EMS to help you or your loved one when you are in danger.

Being eligible for the DTC can also open the door to other government programs. For more information, go to www.cra.gc.ca/dtc or call 1-800-959-8281.
