Ellen's post about evacuation tips made me think of this.... I "pre-registered" with our police station so that GOD FORBID in the case of an emergency of having to call 911....they would already have some of our information in their system. I did it mostly for my daughter (has a dual dx of Autism & Down syndrome) and I am TERRIFIED of her "wandering" off. But it is a good idea for our kids with DS....especially older ones who may on occasion be home alone...if 911 was ever called....all their info would show up on computer screen and paramedics would at least have an indication of what the problem might be. It was easy and completed over the phone.
