SALT LAKE CITY — Utah.gov and the Utah Department of Public Safety Driver License Division have launched a new emergency contact service for people who are in an accident and unable to communicate in an emergency situation.
As part of Utah HB21, passed in 2012, the emergency contact service allows people to indicate to law enforcement and emergency responders up to two designated people to contact in case they are incapacitated on the scene.
Using a valid driver's license, ID card, or driver's permit, Utahns can attach emergency contact information by visiting secure.utah.gov/emergencycontacts/ and provide their last name, driver’s license or ID number and issue date, and the last four digits of their Social Security number.
Under Utah Code, emergency contact information will only be used by law enforcement if a person is involved in a motor vehicle accident or other emergency situation and is unable to communicate with their designated contacts.
