OPP partners with MedicAlert to support vulnerable persons - 24/7 access to vital information that may help save lives

This service may also quickly locate lost or missing vulnerable individuals, such as those living with autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia or other cognitive brain injuries, so they can be quickly and safely returned to their loved ones. Officers called to an emergency involving a MedicAlert subscriber will have access through dispatchers to vital information which could save a life.
OPP and MedicAlert will be introducing this partnership by holding six community focused information and registration sessions across Ontario on June 18th for the launch of MedicAlert Connect Protect service.
