New OC registry to help with administering first aid to disabled
Orange County is encouraging anyone who has a loved one with a developmental disability to become a part of a new project designed to help first responders take care of the disabled in an emergency.
The 911 Registry Project is designed to help first responders take care of children, or adults, with disabilities if they get into an accident, get sick, or even if they're lost.
Delores Fraser McFadden, of the Orange County Disabilities Services Office, says that there have already been several incidents in the county where children have gone missing, and then found at a neighbor's house. "A lot of scary things have happened, and this is just a proactive way to get the word out," McFadden says.
