What is the PLEASE BE KIND Program?
The purpose of this initiative is to provide critical information to Crestview’s First Responders, who may encounter community members with special needs or disabilities. The PLEASE BE KIND Program allows for better communication between Crestview’s First Responders and residents.
How does the program work?
After submitting an enrollment form, an alert will be created within the secure Crestview Communications Database. If Dispatch receives a call for service involving the enrolled member’s information (identification, address, vehicle, etc.), Crestview First Responders will be notified of the alert. The alert will be an additional resource for Crestview First Responders to best respond and communicate with all community members.
Who should enroll?
Any individual (or loved one/caregiver on their behalf) who may require special assistance in an emergency, may enroll in the PLEASE BE KIND Program. This program has been developed with the intent to serve community members, of all ages, who have any special need, disability or limitation that may require specialized assistance to best serve their needs in an emergency.
