If you have ever been in a car accident, the first thing you want to do is get in touch with law enforcement and/or first responders immediately. A new program launched by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will help. 

It's called Emergency Notice. The free service would allow law enforcement to access a contact registry in the event a Kentucky driver's license, permit holder or personal ID card holder is involved car accident or emergency situation.

The portal was developed to offer timely notification to loved ones. Though it's a voluntary service, there is an added incentive for those who do sign up. Your email address and phone number can be added so the Transportation Cabinet can give you updates to let you know when your driver's license information is needed i.e. when you need to renew your license.

The service is only available to valid Kentucky cardholders. The participant's first and last name, date of birth, and license number are required. Contact information is stored securely and can be modified at any time.
