Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald launched an on-line Special Needs Registry that allows residents with physical, mental health and intellectual disabilities to provide information to the Department of Emergency Services.

The voluntary information may then be shared with those responding to a home for a police, fire, or medical emergency.
