State Officials Urging Citizens to Register Emergency Contact

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is encouraging residents to give the free, year-long gift of peace of mind this holiday season by registering an emergency contact. Emergency Notice is an online emergency contact registry accessible to law enforcement officials to know who you would like to be notified in case of a serious emergency. Kentucky citizens with an active driver’s license, personal ID, or permit can submit a contact name and phone number online by visiting drive.ky.gov and clicking the Emergency Notice link. KYTC teamed up with Kentucky State Police and the Department of Criminal Justice Training to encourage Kentuckians to designate a preferred contact using this free, optional service. Contact information is accessible to both in and out-of-state law enforcement officials who have the authority to search driving records and it is only used for emergency purposes.
