Special Nees Assistance Form

This form is for residents with special needs who rely on assistance with issues of mobility, continued (in home) medical care or equipment (I.E. powered wheel chairs, oxygen tanks, etc), and/or those with diminished mental status (I.E. Dementia, Autism). By filling out this form, the Bergenfield Police Department is alerted to any immediate needs and pertinent information in the event that 911 is called, so we may better coordinate care during an emergency.
