Assistance for the Disabled

Emergency Medical Care Program
Town residents who may need special assistance during disasters now have help; the Police Department’s Emergency Medical Care Program. The special Emergency Medical Care Program operated by the Police Department is voluntary and confidential.

Emergency Operations Plan
The Town’s Emergency Operations Plan includes a provision for residents with disabilities or long-term illnesses to request the Police Department to keep a record of their needs so that they can be notified, and evacuated, if necessary. The Police Department will make notifications, and assist with evacuation of residents who do not have family or friends who can help them as resources become available.

These emergencies can include natural or man-made disasters, prolonged interruption of electrical services due to downed power lines, planned power curtailments (rolling blackouts), or other causes.

Requesting a Form
Town residents who have disabling medical needs and can request special notification or assistance should specific emergencies occur that could affect their immediate neighborhood.

This can be requested by submitting a form in person, by telephone at 480-948-7418, by fax at 480-998-0877, or by email to Bob Lee. The form can also be downloaded from the Police Department website. Completed forms must be delivered, faxed, or mailed to the Police Department located at:
  • 6433 E. Lincoln Dr.
    Paradise Valley, AZ 85253

Residents who enroll in the program must also agree to notify the Police Department in writing of changes to their needs and other information, as well as to post a copy of the completed form on their refrigerator in a conspicuous manner.
